Crushers & Destemmers The first step in winemaking is to crush the grapes and remove the stems. MoreWine!'s Crusher/Destemmers are custom manufactured for us in Italy. We keep replacement parts in stock. For more details on each machine, please read on or refer to our extensive website.
Choosing A Crusher Destemmer Capacity & Construction
Capacity The first thing to consider when choosing a Crusher/Destemmer is how much fruit you are trying to process. You want to base the decision on the largest single lot of grapes you are planning to process – not the total amount you will do in a year. Ideally, you want to be able to process an entire lot of fruit in 4–5 hours, as set up and clean up will take up the rest of an 8–10 hour work day. Perhaps the only exception to this is the WE220 & WE220PS hand-cranked models, unless you can recruit some friends to help, which gets pretty tiring to work after about an hour or two.
Construction The second thing to consider when selecting a Crusher/Destemmer is the configuration and choice of construction materials. Our machines are available in Enamel Coated, Partially Stainless Steel, and completely Stainless Steel models. The All Stainless Steel models offer the most durability of the three unit types. The Enamel Coated models are less expensive, as the enamel coating is susceptible to the acidity of the grape juice. The Partially Stainless models offer a great compromise and value. With the partially stainless, all of the parts that come into contact with the grapes and juice are Stainless Steel, and the rest of the unit is Enamel Coated. The style of the crushing rollers in the machine also comes into consideration. Our HandCranked machines feature hard rollers. The Motorized units come equipped with rubber lobed rollers that offer a much gentler crush and generally yield a higher quality must.

Manual Crusher Destemmers Enamel-Coated Unit with Optional Stainless Bin & Agitator Upgrade These hand-cranked Crusher/Destemmers are perfect for the home winemaker who is processing small batches or working in conjunction with friends who don’t mind a little manual labor!
How These Work:
As the unit is cranked, the grapes are pulled by the agitator into the rollers where the grapes are crushed. Next, they fall into the stainless basket where a rotating shaft with paddles separates stems from grapes. The crushed and de-stemmed grapes then fall through the basket while, simultaneously, the stems are pushed out the end and into a refuse can. All of our units feature removable easy-to-clean stainless baskets (grates) where the grapes fall through after they have been crushed.

Motorized With Screw Feed Crushers/Destemmers Can Be Enhanced With The Stand & Chute Option These motorized units come either completely made of stainless steel or partially stainless. The partially stainless models are constructed of stainless steel only where the grapes come in contact with the unit. The rest of the machine is made from Enamel Coated steel.
How These Work:
Grapes are loaded into the top bin where the powered screw feed continually pushes grapes towards the rollers. Grapes are gently crushed by the rubber rollers and then fall into the destemming chamber. The destemming chamber C features a removable basket with a bunch of circular holes in it and a rotating destemming shaft. Grapes fall through the holes into your bucket. Stems get pushed through the basket by the destemming shaft until they exit at the end of the machine where they fall onto the ground or an awaiting bucket.
These machines must be fed with consistency to reach maximum throughput. Overload the machine with too many grapes at one time and the motor will pause and actually slow down production.
Rubber Rollers: These models features rubber rollers which are softer on stems, allowing the reduction of rough tannins in your wine. The rollers are spring loaded and self adjusting to protect against damage.

Jolly 60 REVERSE
Reverse Destemmer Crusher
Crush Pad With Auto Sorting
Destemmer Crusher With Speed Control
EnoItalia's top of the line Centrifugal Destemmer Crusher gives you the highest level of control when processing your grapes. It comes with three independent motors allowing you to dial in the perfect crush for your grapes. The loading hopper features a variable speed motor as does the destemming process. The rubber rollers are also separately motorized and can be adjusted, or even removed, if you desire destemmed whole grapes. Separate control of each process allows you to find the balance between speed and quality and helps the machine from being overloaded at any one of the stages.
This professional crush pad from our partners at Enoitalia features the Jolly 60 Reverse Destemmer and RBS 60 automatic roller sorting table. Three adjustable speed motors allow for independent control of the feeding hopper, the destemming process, and the sorting table. Along with adjustability in the destemming bar and then on gap setting in the sorting process you can really dial in the machine for your application.
A commercial quality machine for the small winery on a budget. The bigger brother of our Jolly 40 Destemmer Crusher. The Jolly 60 features some key upgrades over the Jolly 40 that allows for even more gentle processing.
The Jolly 100 is ideally used with a grape feeding system such as our WE550 Loading and Sorting Table and a Gamma 180 must pump listed below.

Destemmer Crusher With Speed Control A great machine for the small winery who is seeking gentle processing but wants to avoid a high price tag. This is the only machine on the market near this price point that allows you so much flexibility. The most important feature is variable speed control, via a built in electronic frequency drive, that allows you to slow down or speed up to best adjust the machine to the fruit you are processing. The second key feature is an adjustable rubber roller assembly that can be removed when destemming only is preferred. The reception hopper can be connected to a rubber impeller must pump for an affordable must moving solution or can be removed to allow other ways of moving the must. The collection tank is removable allowing must to drop via gravity in place of the built in pump. A good option for the winemaker who would like to use a true commercial size must pump.

Fruit Destoners Pit/Seed Remover & Puree Maker Designed for processing stone fruits, Destoners are made from 304 stainless steel and suitable for most small productions. The machine completely separates the pulp from the inner stone and simultaneously crushes the fruit, creating a final product suitable for fermentation or making fruit juices and jams. Various screens can be installed on the unit, allowing it to be used with multiple food products including cherries, plums, apricots, peaches, olives, etc. Furthermore, the inner blades are adjustable to maximize the efficiency of the particular fruit you are processing.

Gamma Pumps Roll-In Crush Pad Pumps Gamma pumps are heavy duty, elliptical rotor, stainless steel pumps designed to move must from your destemmer to your fermentation tanks or bins. They are often referred to as Roll-in Crush Pad Pumps because they are on wheels and slide directly under your destemmer crusher. While rubber impeller pumps can be made to work for this purpose impeller pumps are not as good in situations where there is very little liquid. Examples would be when you are trying to process whole berries or processing very small berries such as cabernet sauvignon. Elliptical Crush pad pumps are professional solutions. The Gamma 80 works with either our Jolly 40 (WE238) or Jolly 60 (WE239) while the Gamma180 works with the Jolly 100 (WE237).

Sorting Table This Sorting Table solves several issues. It provides a lower receiving hopper in which to load fruit. The bin is oversized to allow you to gradually empty a macrobin when using a hydraulic bin tilter. There is enough space for two people to remove leaves and bad bunches as grapes are fed into the Crusher. Because the table consistently feeds the Destemmer/ Crusher it also solves one of the key problems of overloading. When you dump large quantities of grapes into a crusher all at one time the machine will overload and not work as well, or even fail. The Sorting Table features speed control which is essential for different grape styles, level of sorting, and processing quality.

Wine Presses Wine presses are used to separate the juice from the skins, pulp and seeds that are also part of the grape. When making white wines this is done as soon as the grapes have been crushed and destemmed, prior to fermentation. Because red wines get all their color, as well as a large portion of their flavor, aroma and body from the grape solids, they are not pressed until after fermentation is over.
Speidel Bladder Presses German Made By Speidel Speidel was the original manufacturer of the bladder press. While similar to the Italian models, Speidel offers a few quality upgrades. To obtain a better press Speidel uses a slotted screen, instead of a screen with circular perforations. Slotted screens are typically used on larger commercial bladder presses. Speidel presses also offer superior hardware, a recessed valve assembly (to reduce accidental breakage) and a stainless tripod frame on the 180 L model. Note that Speidel offers a 90 L model rather than the 80 L model offered by Italian manufactures.

Choosing A Press
Selecting the right size press is a function of how much you need to press in a single day. A presscycle consists of preparing the press, running it, cleaning it and preparing for the next load. You want a press that will allow you to process your entire lot of fruit in about 4–5 hours, since set up and clean up will take a while. Keep in mind that your must will be just 30–35% grape solids. As you fill the press the vast majority of the liquid (juice or fermented wine) will run right through the press referred to as free-run wine/juice. So, you only need enough press to get through one lot of wine's worth of solids in a 4–5 hour day.

180 Liter Press
Commercial Bladder Presses
Basket or Bladder There are two basic styles of wine press in the world: Basket Presses which work based on applying mechanical pressure to the top of the grapes and squeezing the juice out; and Bladder Presses which work by expanding a rubber bladder at the center of the press to squeeze the grapes outward against a stainless grate. Generally speaking Bladder Presses are faster, gentler and more efficient, whereas Basket Presses are less expensive.
40 Liter Press
An affordable press for the small producer that allows you to achieve beautiful results. Attach a standard garden hose to the included hose fitting. Water fills up the interior rubber bladder which expands and presses the grapes against the outer stainless steel screen. 28 p.s.i water pressure (2 bar) is the maximum pressure you would need to operate.
300 Liter Press
Two sleeves are provided with the press. One, a mesh sleeve, is placed inside the press and the other is an outer plastic sleeve that is placed over the top to keep the pressed liquid from squirting out. After pressing, the entire stainless basket rotates and the inner mesh sleeve can be pulled out with most of the pressed grape skins coming with it. We used this press in our own small production. Use our EURO 60 must pump (PMP565) to pump up into the press or feed directly via gravity. The 300 L press will do 3/4 of a red macrobin ferment per press. The 460 L press will do 1 1/4 bins per press. We started with one 460 L press and later added a second for larger (10 ton) days. With two presses, one is cleaned while one is being used.

Perforated Suction Tube
Use this tube in conjunction with a pump to suck the wine out from the skins after fermentation is over. Then you can dump the skins, or use a food-grade shovel to move them into your press. This tool is most often used by winemakers using macro-bins for fermentation. The entire unit is 50.5" long. Perforated bottom is 25" long and has 1/8" holes. Has a 2" Tri-Clamp connection on top. For cleaning, the perforated section disassembles from the shaft/tube section by loosening an allen bolt clamp. WE548
H. Handheld Fruit Collector
#20 Fruit Press Great for pressing the juice from soft fruits (pitted peaches, apricots, etc.) or when used in conjunction with our manual apple crusher to make cider (WE205 page 61). The basket is made from perforated stainless steel. The press mechanism is a single plate that pushes down via a threaded shaft that is connected to a t-handle. The entire pressing mechanism is hinged and folds out of the way when done. 20 cm Diameter basket holds 2.5 Gallons at a time. WE102
This is a very simple, but highly effective tool for picking grapes. Essentially a funnel that does not have a hole. Hold it one-handed underneath a grape bunch and clip off the grapes with your other hand. Much easier than holding a bucket where the handle, and your hand, are constantly in the way. WE002
I. Italian Grape Collection Bucket with Handle
Imported grape picking bucket from Italy with a sturdy handle. Is more maneuverable than a 5 gallon bucket when trying to get in and around grapevines and is also much easier to carry. They do a lot of handpicking in Italy... they have it figured out! WE003
J. Must Filter with Handle
A plastic filter basket that can be used to drain off small amounts of must. Allow the free run wine to flow through while you collect the skins for your grape press. Can also be used for picking grapes. WE001

Standard Features of Speidel Tanks Interior Finish Speidel tanks feature an ultra-smooth "2R" rated interior surface which effectively resist the build-up of tartrate residues. Say goodbye to harsh chemicals and expensive CIP systems! Clean your tanks with cold water after cold stabilization!
Weld Quality Speidel’s robotic-arm laser welders create flawless stainless to stainless junctions that look and feel more like a taped fabric seam than a traditional weld. Ultra high-quality welds leave less chance for residual product to harbor spoilage organisms.
25 Year Warranty Each and every tank is backed with an industry-leading 25 year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. And, as a 5th generation manufacturer, you can be confident they’ll be around to honor that warranty should the need arise.
White Rubber Lid Gaskets All Speidel Variable Volume Tanks come standard with upgraded White Rubber Lid Gaskets. Rubber gaskets are much thicker than the traditional clear vinyl type and offer a superior barrier seal against oxygen. See our video on clear vinyl gaskets leaks on our website.
Tri-Clamp Valve Ferrules All Speidel tanks over 220 L come configured for use with Tri-Clamp (TC) style valves and fittings. Tanks up to 1600 L capacity are outfitted for use with 1.5" TC and tanks larger than 1600 L are outfitted for 2" TC. Other sizes and custom configurations are available at additional cost upon request.
Thermometer And Thermowell Speidel tanks above 220L include a standard DIN10 (teflon free) thermowell with a removable thermometer set into it. That means that you get both a thermometer and a thermowell in one! The DIN style male threads ensure a sanitary junction.
Full Drainage Bottoms All Speidel tanks on legs are outfitted with draining, pocketed bottoms for total drainage, which maximizes product yield at racking and makes cleaning a snap.
Molded Standard Manways Sealed-top tanks come with a molded in, weld free, oval manway as standard. Larger, Rectangular and Fermentation manways are available as either replacements or add-ons.
Sample Valve Used for drawing off small samples for tasting or testing without opening the tank and exposing the contents to the ambient environment. Fits to a standard DIN10 connection. The DIN style male threads ensure a sanitary junction. No Teflon tape necessary. Small variable volume tanks do not come standard with sample valves.
Lifting Arm Lifting Arms are standard on Variable Volume tanks sized 1600 L and up.
Optional Tank Features Cooling Jackets
All Speidel tanks are available with either a standard cooling band or a full coverage jacket. All jackets are laser-welded dimple-style jackets that are rated for up to 6 bar/85 psi of pressure. Most other tank brands featuring cooling jackets are only rated for 15psi. Because many glycol machines run at pressure above 15psi you then have to purchase pressure regulators for each tank. Speidel tanks can connect directly with any winery glycol systems.
Tanks are available with optional Leveling Feet which help you to get sure footing on uneven or sloped flooring. Larger tanks feature two feet per leg.
Pump Over Tubes
All tanks larger than 500 L are available with enlarged rectangular manways or horizontal-opening, slope-bottomed fermentation manways.
Sight Gauges All tanks are available with built-in, draining sight gauges. Sight gauges are handy for monitoring tank volume in sealed tanks and for measuring volume while blending.
Top Hatches Sealed top tanks are available with a variety of Top Hatch options: Forward-set or Centered, Raised Flush or In-line with the slope of the tank top.
Speidel tanks are available with 1" stainless pump-over tubes installed. Pump-over tubes include a spinning irrigator to distribute the fermenting juice back onto the entire cap. On Variable Volume tanks the Pump-over Option also includes a support bar so the irrigator can be positioned in the center of the tank.

ForgeFit® Rotating Racking Arm
Always drain from the perfect height with our tri-clover style rotating racking arms. Remove your existing tri-clamp butterfly valve and place this rotating racking arm between the tank and your valve. When it is time to rack off slightly loosen the clamp nearest the tank and use the built-in handle to rotate to just about the lees level. A white rotatable gasket is placed between the welded in tank fitting and this rotating arm. Because the micro finish of the gasket is hard and slippery it allows the rotating arm to rotate in place. A standard black EPDM gasket is placed between the rotating arm and the butterfly valve and is always kept completely tightened. Manufactured from 304-type stainless steel with a polished finish. D.

Wine Yeast Alcoholic Fermentation When we add wine yeast to our must, the yeast consume the sugars and create alcohol and CO2 as by-products. This transformation of sugar into alcohol by the wine yeast is what turns the juice/must into wine and is the basis of all winemaking. Each wine yeast has its own unique set of flavors and aromas, so take a look at our Yeast & Grape Pairing Manual to help find the yeast that is best suited to your winemaking style. Remember, it's the wine yeast that is actually making the wine, we as winemakers just provide the introduction and handle the details! Manual can be found on-line at: www.morewine.com/content/manuals Inoculation Rates The recommended amount of wine yeast needed for a healthy wine fermentation is governed by two elements; 1. the initial ºBrix (starting sugar content) of the must, and 2. the factors of the fermentation itself:
1. Assuming that proper wine fermentation management will
be followed to keep the wine yeast as stress free as possible (ex: nutrients will be used, temperature and pH will be within acceptable ranges for the chosen strain, etc.), it is recommended to adjust the yeast inoculation rates based on the initial ºBrix of the must: • Below 25 ºBrix: 1 gram of wine yeast per 1 gallon of must is recommended. • 25 ºBrix or above: 1.25 grams of wine yeast per 1 gallon of must is recommended.
2. Even at “normal” sugar levels of 24 ºBrix and below, a lack of sufficient nutrients, uncontrolled temperature spikes, inhibitory factors from residual late-season vineyard treatments or even spoilage compounds from mold and rot in the fruit can each contribute to stressing the yeast population during fermentation. As a result, a smaller percentage of healthy wine yeast will actually make it to the end of the fermentation and the wine will be at a greater risk of becoming sluggish or even stopping fermentation before the sugars have been consumed. Therefore, if the winemaker knows that the yeast will be placed in a potentially stressful situation, even if the sugars are in the 24 ºBrix and below, then the initial dosage rate should be bumped-up to create a ‘safety in numbers’ kind of scenario (from 1 g per gal to 1.25–1.5 g per gal). IMPORTANT NOTE: This larger dosage rate does not take the place of proper fermentation management, it only compliments it by raising the numbers a little more in the winemaker’s favor. True, you may have more wine yeast now, but you will still have to feed and care for them to avoid the usual H 2 S problems! For optimum wine yeast health, we recommend following the protocols for yeast rehydration along with our recommended nutrient schedule in our MoreManual! “Yeast Rehydration Guide” at: www.morewine.com/content/manuals Which Yeast is Best? Each wine yeast has its own personality & depending on your winemaking style and the specific grape varietal you are working with there may be more than one that would make a really nice wine! To help you narrow the field a little, MoreWine! has created a Yeast & Grape Pairing Manual. The guide lists the top recommended wine yeasts for each grape varietal and lists the specific attributes each yeast gives for that particular grape varietal.

Dry Wine Yeast CellarScience® Yeast BOUQUET • • • •
Produces ß-glucosidase to cleave terpenes Floral, Rose, Citrus flavors Will not produce volatile phenols Best choice for Muscat/Moscato & Gewurztraminer. Also great for Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Viognier
Those floral, rose, citrus, and stone fruit aromatics are bound all up in terpense in your grape skins and you know, they would really like to get out. It's your job to free them, package them in a bottle, and eventually let them waft out of a wine glass and into the nasal cavity of someone who appreciates excellence. We can help you do this. If you are making a higly aromatic white such as Muscat, Gewürztraminer, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling this is the ideal yeast. BOUQUET is known for its production of the enzyme ß-glucosidase which liberates aromatic compounds by cleaving terpenes from the sugars that bind them and releasing their goodness. This yeast will turn these certain grape varietals from ordinary white wines to highly aromatic, very special white wines that smell and taste amazing. The type of wine where 'stuff' wafts out of the glass! Also interesting is that most yeasts have the potential to produce phenolic off flavors, which in high quantities produce a paint like aroma (yuck!), if the conditions are less than ideal. However, BOUQUET is POF (phenolic off flavors) negative and will synthesize phenolic off flavors, eliminating that risk. This is a great yeast to co-ferment with Luscious for added complexity. Additional Fermfed nutrient is recommended at the start of fermentation due to the short lag phase of this strain. Due to such a rapid period of growth, the yeast cells require higher levels of nutrients to ensure a healthy fermentation. If you have had your wine tested and know your Yeast Available Nitrogen (YAN) follow our CellarScience nutrient feeding schedule accordingly. If you don't know your YAN we recommend hydrating with Fermstart, feeding with FermFed at the onset of fermentation and feeding again with regular Fermfed after 1/3 sugar depletion. Normally the feeding at the onset of fermentation would be with Fermfed DAP free but in this case BOUQUET can use the extra DAP kick that Fermfed provides. DYW100B8 grams DYW100500 grams
BIG RED • • • • • • •
Recomended for aged red wines High color extraction Significant polysaccaride and glycerol production for huge mouthfeel High alcohol tolerence High nutrient need Top choice for Bordeaux varietals Cabernet, Cab Franc, Petite Verdot and Merlot Also excelletnt for Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and some Pinot
The name kind of says it all. BIG RED is ideal for producing big, complex red wines with lasting fruit. Depending on the grape varietal used it can emphasize complex berry fruit and spice flavors. This strain is very efficient at breaking down and extracting tannins and anthocyanins from grape skin walls, making wines with dark inky color and a tannin profile suitable for extended aging. BIG RED also produces a great mouthfeel due to the significant production of polysaccharides and glycerol. It is also tolerant to higher alcohol levels making it ideal for those grapes that need to stay on the vine just a little longer to get full phenolic ripes with smooth tannin profiles. So lets recap... emphasizes berry fruit with many varietals, produces dark color, extracts a full array of tannins suitable for extended aging, makes wines with great mouthfeel, and is resistant to higher alcohols. Is there a catch? No, but to get all that done BIG RED does love nutrients and you will need to feed it and pay attention to it during fermenation. This is a strain where you would ideally know your Free Available Nitrogen levels that you could base a nutrient schedule around. Absent those numbers or a history with the grapes you are fermentiing, we would suggest you start with hydrating with Fermstart, feeding with FermFed DAP free at the onset of fermentation and feeding again with
regular Fermfed after 1/3 sugar depletion. BIG RED is a very low producer of H2S when nutrient demands are met. The perfect strain if you want to make amazing reds. Because this strain respects varietal character it can be used for a broad spectrum of red grape varietals. DYW105B8 grams DYW105500 grams
FRESH • • • • • •
Producer of fresh fruit aromas/flavors Best choice for fruit forward wines Best choice for ciders Best choice for Roses Ability for ferment cooler Strong fermenter
The perfect choice for fermenting fruit forward whites, roses, ciders, and meads. Because FRESH is a Bayanus strain it is able to ferment at lower temperatures, a nice option for producing cleaner more focused fruit flavors. Emphasizes stone fruit flavors. We almost named it Beauty and the Beast because once it starts fermenting it doesn't stop. Super easy to ferment with lower nutrient needs and a a very high alochol tolerance up to 16%. Many cider producers like this yeast for its ability to add those fresh and fruity flavors. Although easy to ferment, we still recommend our CellarScience nutrient regimen of Fermstart, FermFed DAP Free, and FermFed to increase fruit and floral flavors, while avoiding H2S production that can mask fruit.

LUSCIOUS • Autolyzing, quick release of polysaccarides such as mannoproteins • Top choice for sur lie aging • Ability to ferment cold for clean flavor with emphasis on mouthfeel and toastiness of sur lie aging • When fermented warmer exoctic tropical flavors shine • Frequently used to make luscious Chardonnays and similar white wines Luscious Chardonnays with creamy mouthfeel and deep complexity... if that is your end point, LUSCIOUS is your starting point. LUSCIOUS can be fermented at different temps depending on your style preference. Ferment it cooler, it can handle it, and put the emphasis on the creaminess and the toasted champagnelike complexity of sur lie ageing. Or crank it up a bit warmer and add in some more tropical notes, your choice. However the magic of LUSCIOUS really happens after fermentation when this yeast goes naturally goes nuclear, implodes and breaks open its cell walls, during a process called autolysis. Polysaccharides such as mannoproteins are released into the wine... and man, it's all about those mannoproteins creating that rich, creamy mouthfeel that so many Chardonnay
drinkers seek out. The silky richness is emphasized even futher by sur lie aging, aging on clean lees for a period of time, in either tank or barrel. Being a low producer of SO2 it is naturally great candiate for later malo-lactic fermentations. Now that we have painted a picture try putting this marketing wizardry on your next label "The 10-40w viscosity of this wine is due to it being loaded with mannoproteins from the guts of exploded yeast cells". Maybe leave us out of the wine marketing department but we do know a winning yeast when we taste it. #1 for this style of Chardonnay but also a top choice for Viognier and other whites.

• Big mouthfeel from high glycerol /polysaccharide / mannoproteins • Flavors of Cherries, Raspberries, Figs, Jam, Red currant • High alcohol tolerence • Low nutrient needs • Perfect for Syrah, Zinfandel, Pinot, Merlot, Malbec, Sangiovese, Grenache Our go-to choice for those reds originating from the Cote du Rhone in France such as Syrah, Grenache, and Mouvedre. Also a top choice for Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Malbec, Merlot, and Pinot. Induces flavors of ripe cherries, raspberries, red curant, figs and jam. Due to its production of glycerol and release of mannoproteins it produces full bodied, rich red wines. PURPLE has a very low production of SO2 which is favorable for an easy malolactic fermentation (MLF) post fermentation. PURPLE is also an easy to ferment yeast with a low nutrient needs which is the opposite of our Big Red strain. It also has a "killer" quality and naturally inhibits unwanted bacterial or wild yeast growth during fermentation. DYW104B8 grams DYW104500 grams
CITRUS • Cleaves (Chops!) thiols releasing citrus, passionfruit, grapefruit, floral flavors • Ferment at 58-61 for maximum enzymatic activity • #1 Choice for Sauvinon Blanc. Also good for Viognier Oh thiols, you elusive magical compound. Nice try hiding behind Cysteine-4mmp, but CITRUS sees you. Cleaving thiols from other compounds is what CITRUS does, releasing the classic citrus, lime, passionfruit, and floral flavors that help separate styles like Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier from ordinary white table wine. Also can be used with Chardonnay , other whites, and is great for Rose. CITRUS can ferment at cooler temperatures but the enzymatic cleaving activity is highest at around 56-60F. So if you like Zesty Grapefruit, lime, lemon peel, floral, and passionfruit flavors, CITRUS may be
MORE ON THIOLS: Thiols are organic sulphur compounds that are resonsible for the most prized flavors in many white wines. 4mmp (black current), 3MH (Passion fruit, Grapefruit and Citrus) and 3MHA (Tropical Passionfruit, Rose) DYW106B8 grams DYW106500 grams
RED Emphasizes red berry fruit flavors High color extraction Makes wines that do not require extended aging Med-High nutrient need Top choice for Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Pinot, Merlot
When compared with BIG RED or PURPLE, RED is less about structure and body and more about fruit. Fantastic by itself if you plan to blend separately fermented lots back together. RED is a great choice to contribute red berry flavor. Also known to help produce intense color. Also a great choice for Cabernet, Syrah and other traditinoal big red varietals where you would like to emphasize fruit over structure and body. Because RED ferments cleaner than most yeast at high temperatures, it is the perfect choice if you are fermenting in a warm environment and do not have temperature control. It does not produce much SO2 so it is a great choice for easier ML fermentations. DYW107B8 grams DYW107500 grams

Lallemand & Lalvin Yeast CLOS
Syrah, Grenache, Carignane, Tempranillo Isolated in the Priorat region of Spain. Chosen for its ability to reinforce structure while emphasizing aromatic complexity and mouthfeel. Sweet red fruit (cherry), with pepper and chocolate notes are typical of what Clos adds to a fermentation. With hot climate/high Brix fruit, Clos is a great choice for its high alcohol tolerance (17%), low Nitrogen needs and short lag phase. Clos also does well with higher fermentation temps. (max 95˚F) and shows a good compatibility with MLF. Highly recommended for Syrah, Petite Syrah, Grenache, Tempranillo and Carignane. DYW458 grams DYW45A80 grams DYW45B500 grams
Tempranillo, Barbera, Sangiovese, Zinfandel VRB is a Spanish isolate from the Rioja region selected for its ability to handle high-alcohol (up to 17%) fermentations while creating exceptional flavor complexity. VRB improves mid-palate mouthfeel, softens tannins, and enhances the varietal characteristics of the fruit with an emphasis on dried plums, jammy fruit and hazelnuts. Shows a good compatibility with MLF. A moderate rate fermenter with medium nitrogen requirements. A great strain for Tempranillo, Barbera, Sangiovese and Zinfandel. Temperature range 58–80°F. DYW468 grams DYW46A80 grams DYW46B500 grams
Rosé, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Chardonnay, Syrah Rhône 4600 is a Cote du Rhône isolate that has a short lag phase, low nutrient demand, and has the ability to ferment well at low temperatures. Its high level of polysaccharide production contributes intense mouthfeel and volume to a finished wine. In addition, helps create complex aromatic notes along with a high degree of ester production. In whites like Viognier, Marsanne, Roussane, and Chardonnay there is an emphasis on pineapple, pear, and apple. When used in Rosés made from Mouvedre, Grenache and Syrah, intense, elegant, fresh strawberry becomes the focus. While Rhone 4600 is good for white wine production, it is an excellent yeast for making Rosés either by itself or as part of a blend. Best results from 56 to 72°F, with an alcohol tolerance of 15%. DYW47A8 grams DYW47B80 grams DYW47500 grams
Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Semillon & Chenin Blanc Mainly used in the production of white wines. T306 is a moderate fermenter with high nitrogen needs, so proper hydration and nutrients are recommended. However, it is worth it, as T306 excels at producing concentrated, fruit driven wines. When used in Pinot Gris, Semillon, and Chardonnay, T306 emphasizes exotic fruits and lush pineapple. With barrel fermented Chardonnay and lees contact, T306 delivers elegant white fruit and good mouthfeel. When looking to create an elegant, aromatic white wine, T306 is a great choice either by itself or as a major blending component. Best results from 59 to 86°F, with an alcohol tolerance of 14%. DYW48A8 grams DYW48B80 grams DYW48500 grams
Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon A recently isolated Californian strain selected from spontaneous Rockpile Syrah fermentations by Vinquiry in collaboration with winemaker Jeff Cohn. RP15 is a moderate rate fermenter with average nitrogen demands. Due to its ability to develop a structured yet lush and balanced mouthfeel, RP15 is ideally suited to making rich concentrated reds. Initial winemaker feedback has indicated that RP15 does well with emphasizing varietal flavor and red fruit character. In addition, with careful hydration and nutrients, RP15 delivers good mineral and spice notes to wine. Best results from 59 to 90°F, with an alcohol tolerance of 16%. DYW49A8 grams DYW49B80 grams DYW49500 grams
A traditional yeast for Pinot Noir Primarily used as a strain for Pinot, but recommended for red varieties where full extraction is desired. Color stability is maintained throughout fermentation and aging. Aromas of ripe berry and fruit are emphasized while respecting pepper and spicy notes as well. Alcohol tolerance of 12–14%. Fermentation range of 59–86°F. DYW58A8 grams DYW58B80 grams DYW58C500 grams
Pinot Gris, Riesling, Grenache, Rosé, Red French Hybrids, American Cultivars, Fruit Wines A very fast starting strain that produces round, smooth, more aromatic wines that mature quickly. Great for blush and residual sugar white wines. Lots of aroma. Alcohol tolerance of 14%. Fermentation range of 59–86°F. DYW50A8 grams DYW50B80 grams DYW50C500 grams
Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Chenin Blanc, American Cultivars, Sparkling Base, Fruit Wine Rapid-starter that can ferment well in low nutrient musts with higher levels of SO2 or sugar. Will overcome wild yeast. Expresses the freshness of white grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc. Will help restart stuck ferments. 18% alcohol tolerance. Fermentation range of 59–86˚F. DYW52A8 grams DYW52B80 grams DYW52C500 grams
Strong fermenting/low problems/neutral flavor Good flocculation with neutral flavor & aroma. Very popular because of its strong fermentation characteristics and lack of problems. Used in a wide range of wines including most red wines, sparkling wines and late harvest grapes where the alcohol tolerance of up to 18% is a perfect fit. Not a great choice for wine that will be seeing a malolactic fermentation as EC1118 naturally produces higher levels of SO2 which can inhibit malolactic fermentations. Fermentation range of 45–95°F. DYW54A8 grams DYW54B80 grams DYW54C500 grams
Used for lees aging Chardonnay Produces superior quality white wines, especially Chardonnay. Enhances mouth feel and is fantastic for lees aging. When left on lees, ripe spicy flavors with tropical and citrus notes develop. Malolactic fermentation proceeds well after the use. Will also enhance fruit flavors and aromas in Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Riesling. Fermentation range of 59–68°F. DYW568 grams DYW56A80 grams DYW56B500 grams
Intensely fruit forward strain for white wines A strong fermenting strain used for fresh, fruity white wines. Beta glucosidase activity releases bound terpenes for aroma enhancement in Muscat, Sauvignon blanc and Gewurztraminer. We also used QA23 in Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and found it to produce wine with more intensely focused fruit, particularly tropical fruits. Will not give structure to a wine, but it truly excels at focusing the fruit either alone or as part of a blend. Low nutrition requirement. Strong fermentation rate. Fermentation range of 50–90°F. DYW608 grams DYW60A80 grams DYW60B500 grams
Bordeaux Red BDX
Classic, moderate speed fermenter for most reds A French isolate used extensively in California and Australia and maintained at UC Davis as strain UCD-725. Highly recommended for production of quality red wines. Low volatile acid production. Medium-rate fermenter with low hydrogen sulfide production. Does not really add to the mouthfeel of a wine, rather it focuses on the structural components. Minimum color loss in red wines with enhanced flavor and aroma of the wine. This is one of the yeasts that MoreWine! uses in the production of the majority of our red wines. In past vintages, BDX has continuously been shown to excel not just with the Bordeaux varietals, but with Zinfandel and the Rhone one's, as well. Alcohol tolerance of 16%. Fermentation range of 64–86°F. DYW628 grams DYW62A80 grams DYW62B500 grams
Add spice to Pinot/Zin while retaining color Originating from Geisenheim Research Institute, AMH is useful for making Pinot noir and Zinfandel. It is considered a color friendly strain that enhances spicy (clove, nutmeg) and fruity flavors and aromas. AMH has a long lag phase, a slow to medium fermentation rate and benefits greatly from the use of GOFERM Protect and Fermaid K. Good strain domination is obtained with AMH if the culture is allowed to develop in about 10% of the total must for about 8 hours before final inoculation. Note that in the hydration phase, AMH does not appear to be as active as other yeast can be, but this is not an indication of viability. Fermentation range of 68–86˚F, and up to 15% alcohol. DYW688 grams DYW68A80 grams DYW68B500 grams
Famous Chardonnay strain for barrel ferments Burgundy isolate for barrel fermentation of Chardonnay. Short lag time, alcohol tolerant up to 15% (v/v). Somewhat nutrient sensitive, it can be slow to finish in low nutrient wines if not fed correctly, but it is worth making the effort. Pineapple and floral notes are quickly joined by the development of fresh butter, toasted bread, honey, hazelnut and almond when aged on the lees, along with contributing a rich and full mouthfeel. CY3079 is lovely for that "classic" white Burgundy, or it can serve as a great foundation for a blend. Fermentation range of 59–77°F. DYW648 grams DYW64A80 grams DYW64B500 grams
For Sangiovese, hybrids, roses, and other light reds An interesting yeast which can reduce the sensation of acidity and astringency in red wines from difficult conditions such as high acidity. Delicate fruitforward aromas of cherry, blackberry, plum, and ripe fruits will be present in wines fermented using this yeast. Floral characteristics such as wild violet, as well as spice and vanilla have also been noted. The RBS strain will work well in conjunction with malolactic fermentation. Best fermentation results occur within 61–82°F. This is a moderate fermenter with medium nutrient requirements, capable of withstanding alcohol content up to 16%. DYW698 grams DYW69A80 grams DYW69B500 grams
Provides structure and spice to red wines D80 was isolated by Dominique Delteil of the ICV in 1992 from the Cote Rotie area of the Rhone Valley. In addition to its ability to enhance tannin structure, it's known for being able to ferment musts high in sugar and polyphenols. With proper nutrition, aeration and fermentation temperatures below 82°F, D80 will ferment up to 16% alcohol. D80 brings high fore-mouth volume, big mid-palate mouthfeel and intense fine grain tannin to reds. It is one of the best strains for contributing big tannin volume in a blend. Characterized by concentrated, dark fruit, smoke and a licorice finish. When blended with wines fermented with D254 or Syrah, wines fermented with D80 bring more tannin intensity to the blend. In short, this yeast is truly great for the structural support it can bring to a wine. However, if the winemaker is looking for highlighted fruit and ethereal top-notes as well, it often may not be the best choice when using a single strain in the vintage. Therefore, it may help to think of it as usually needing a companion strain to help bring everything to a finished wine. Fermentation range of 59–82°F. DYW668 grams DYW66A80 grams DYW66B500 grams
Premier strain for Syrah, Zin, Merlot & Carignane Syrah is a Côte du Rhône isolate used for Syrah, Zin, Merlot and Carignane. It is a high glycerol producer and offers good mouthfeel and stable color extraction. Requires high nutrient levels and shows the best sensory results when rehydrated with GO-FERM Protect. Typical aromas include violets, raspberries, cassis, strawberries, and black pepper. Yes, that sounds good! Alcohol tolerance of 16%. Fermentation range of 59–86°F. DYW708 grams DYW70A80 grams DYW70B500 grams
Fast fermenter known for mouthfeel & ripe fruit Rhone isolate for red wine and chardonnays. Vigorous ferment with a short lag time, this yeast enhances mouthfeel and color stability due to polysaccharidetannin complexing. When the fermentation is aerated and the temp is below 85°F, and used with Go-Ferm Protect and Fermaid K, D254 has an alcohol tolerance of up to 16%. If using this yeast for a Chardonay, Go-Ferm Protect is especially recommended as a rehydration nutrient. This yeast can ferment hot at times. Benefits include a high fore-mouth volume, big mid-palate mouthfeel, and intense ripe fruit/ jam concentration. It will also give you a nice fruit character, noticeably prune, blackberry, spicy black pepper and licorice in red wines. In Chardonay, low notes of pear and pineapple,
and higher notes of smoke, hazelnut, and almond character. Some winemakers blend this yeast with CY3079 (DYW64) to create a wine with nutty aromas and a creamy mouthfeel. Red wines made with D254 may be blended with D80 for a more concentrated, fuller-bodied wine. Alcohol tolerance of 16%. Fermentation range of 53–82°F. DYW728 grams DYW72A80 grams DYW72B500 grams
Slow fermenter adds mouthfeel & complexity Italian isolate that is recommended for Sangiovese and extended maceration wines. A slow starter and moderate fermenter, BM45 should be used in conjunction with Go-Ferm Protect (AD343) and Fermaid K (AD345) in order to minimize H2S production. BM45 can contribute higher acidity, low astringency, color stabilization, and enhanced mouthfeel. Produces high levels of polysaccharides, resulting in wines with great mouthfeel and improved color stability. Will bring out aromas described as fruit jams, rose and cherry liqueurs, with notes of sweet spices, licorice and cedar. It is also used in Bordeaux varietals to minimize vegetal characteristics while maximizing complexity. Some winemakers use this yeast on Chardonnay as a blending component to increase mouthfeel. We used it on part of our Cabernet Sauvignon production and loved everything but the fact that it finishes later than other strains making it hard to coordinate pressing. Alcohol tolerance of 16%. Fermentation range of 64–82°F. DYW748 grams DYW74A80 grams DYW74B500 grams
Perfect for Grenache & short skin contact ferments For easy-to-drink Rhone style wines. This versatile strain is suitable for reds, roses and whites. In red wines, it contributes up front fruit to easy-to-drink Rhone style wines, often with a nice spicy quality if present in the fruit. GRE can also be effectively used with short skin contact regiments (3 to 5 days) to reduce vegetal and undesirable sulfur components in varietals like Merlot, Cabernet, Grenache and Syrah. In addition to bringing fresh, ripe fruit qualities, GRE also helps to enhance the mouthfeel of a wine. While it may not be a powerhouse in itself, this yeast truly excels at being able to keep a red wine blend from potentially becoming too heavy and pedestrian. When used in fruit focused whites like Chenin blanc, Riesling, and Viognier, GRE results in stable fresh fruit characteristics and delivers a big fore-mouth impact. Alcohol tolerant up to 15%. Fermentation range 59–82°F. DYW788 grams DYW78A80 grams DYW78B500 grams
Whites, Pinot, Icewine, Fruit Wines A fructophile for clean, low temperature ferments. W15 was isolated in 1991 from high quality Muller Thurgau must originating in the vineyards at the Viticulture Research Station in Wadenswil, Switzerland. W15 was developed to ferment dry whites at moderate speeds where bright fruit and heavy mouthfeel are desired. This yeast does just that, and it does so while respecting the varietal characteristics of the fruit. W15 can also be used to ferment high quality, fruit focused, light red wines from Pinot Noir and cool-climate Syrah. Short lag phase, moderate rate

fermenter at temperature ranges between 50 to 81°F. W15 produces higher levels of glycerol and succinic acid especially at higher fermentation temperatures (above 77°F) Alcohol tolerant up to 16%. Fermentation range of 50–81°F. DYW798 grams DYW79A80 grams DYW79B500 grams
Great mouthfeel/Orange blossom flavors BA11 was selected in 1997 near Estacao Vitivinicola de Barraida in Portugal. It has excellent fermentation kinetics, even at low temperatures. It promotes clean, aromatic, estery characteristics during fermentation. BA11 intensifies mouthfeel and augments lingering flavors in both still and sparkling white wines. BA11 encourages the fresh fruit aromas of orange blossom, pineapple and apricot. In relatively neutral white varieties BA11 brings out tropical fruit, cream, vanilla and spice. With fruit from hot climates, BA11 can help to "flesh out" a wine by its volume and mouthfeel enhancement. This strain is good by itself, as well as being a great structural component to a blend. Best results occur from 50–77°F, and alcohol tolerant up to 16%. DYW818 grams DYW81A80 grams DYW81B500 grams
Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay Dominique Delteil selected D21 from a Languedoc terroir known for producing wines with stable color, intense foremouth, mid-palate tannin structure, and a fresh aftertaste. Unlike most wine yeasts, D21 both contributes polysaccharides and retains higher acidity, which can be useful when working with warm-climate fruit. These attributes also inhibit the development of cooked jam and burning-alcohol sensations in highly mature and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. During fermentation, D21 produces very few sulfide compounds even at warmer temperatures, which allows the expression of the fruit to remain fresh while reducing the potential for herbaceous characters developing in the wine. Useful in situations where temperature control may be less than ideal. When combined with wines fermented with various yeast chosen for their structure and complexity (D254 & D80), wines fermented with D21 excel at being able to bring bright, fresh-fruit back to a blend and serve as a great "focusing element". D21 serves in this capacity for both reds and whites. We have used this yeast as part of our own Cabernet Sauvignon program and have been really happy with it. Alcohol tolerance of 16%. Fermentation range of 55–90°F. DYW848 grams DYW84A80 grams DYW84B500 grams
Known for starting stuck ferments The best yeast to use on stuck fermentations. It has a high alcohol tolerance, short lag time, and ability to ferment over a broad temperature range. Great for a variety of styles of wine, this yeast demonstrates a relatively neutral sensory effect on the finished wine, but has been known to impart some berry and cherry aromatics. Please note, if you are trying to restart a stuck fermentation, there will be a lag time before 43 begins to ferment the stuck wine as it gets acclimated to its new environment. This is normal, and once it gets underway it usually proceeds at a good rate
until it finishes. However, during this pause, since you are no longer getting protection from the CO2 of an active fermentation, you will have to take measures to protect the wine from oxidation and spoilage. This usually means flushing headspaces with inert gas and possibly using Lysozym (AD352), as well. Alcohol tolerance of 18%. Fermentation range of 55–95°F. DYW768 grams DYW76A80 grams DYW76B500 grams
For aromatic whites/Vigorous cold temperature fermenter R2 was isolated in the Sauternes region of Bordeaux by Brian Croser of South Australia. In addition to enhancing esters and mouthfeel, it has excellent cold temperature properties and will ferment as low as 50°F, making it ideal for Icewine production. However, if it does not get proper nutrients it can tend to produce VA and H2S. For this reason, hydration with GO-FERM Protect (AD343) and the addition of Fermaid K (AD345) is definitely recommended to optimize its potential. R2 helps produce intense, direct fruit style whites by liberation of fruity and floral fermentative aromas. R2 also helps to enhance the varietal charter via enzymatic release of bound aroma precursors. It is recommended for aromatic white varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chenin Blanc, Vidal, and Seyval. R2 is classified as a Saccharomyces cerevisiae bayanus. Alcohol tolerance of 16%. Fermentation range of 50–86°F. DYW808 grams DYW80A80 grams DYW80B500 grams
For Aromatic Whites - Especially Riesling R-HST was selected for its exceptional oenological properties in Riesling trials conducted in the Heiligenstein region of Austria. R-HST has a short lag phase and generation time, even at cold temperatures. These features allow it to dominate and persist over spoilage yeast such as Kloeckera apiculata, where other Saccharomyces cerevisiae might have difficulty. A relatively neutral strain, R-HST retains fresh varietal character while contributing body and mouthfeel. R-HST produces crisp, premium white wines intended for aging. R-HST is best used when the most transparency between a fruit and a finished wine is sought. This can be useful for showcasing quality fruit and terroir differences, as well as making sure original fruit characters are retained in a final blend. Alcohol tolerance of 15%. Fermentation range of 50–86°F. DYW828 grams DYW82A80 grams DYW82B500 grams
Premium yeast for Bordeaux style Reds MT was selected in Saint Emilion by the ITV Bordeaux and Martin Vialatte Oenologie in collaboration with the INRA Montpellier for its ability to enhance varietal fruit and floral aromas, along with strawberry jam, caramel, and spice notes. Although highly recommended for Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, MT also does well in most red programs where a "soft, fresh bowl of berries" element is needed/desired either by itself or as part of a blend. Wines made with MT show good color stability along with enhanced tannic structure and rich mouthfeel, making
MT an ideal compliment to winemaking styles destined for aging. Although MT's fermentation kinetics are steady and its' alcohol tolerance is fairly high, it will still benefit from a balanced nutrient strategy, especially in musts with low available nitrogen and a high potential alcohol. Alcohol tolerance of 15%. Fermentation range 59–90°F. DYW838 grams DYW83A80 grams DYW83B500 grams
Premier strain for Sauvignon Blanc This strain was selected following research identifying the molecules responsible for Sauvignon Blanc aroma. VL3 was found to enhance Sauvignon Blanc varietal characters and aromas (Mercaptopentanone, Mercapthohexanol, etc.) Subsequent experimentation has found this to be true of other varieties such as Riesling and Pinot Gris as well. VL3 is well suited to aging on the lees and produces very low levels of VA and SO2. A premier yeast for Sauvignon Blanc fermentation worldwide. Best results from 60–68°F, alcohol tolerant up to 14%. DYW858 grams DYW85A80 grams DYW85B500 grams
Chardonnay, Sparkling Base, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Late Harvest, Fruit Wine DV10 is a Champagne isolate that was selected by the Station Oenotechnique de Champagne (SOEC) and was approved by the CIVC in Epernay, France. Known as “the original Champagne isolate” (aka “Epernay”), DV10 is one of the most widely used strains in the Champagne region. Famous for its ability to ferment under stressful conditions of low pH, high total SO 2 and low temperature, DV10 gives clean fermentations that preserve varietal fruit character while adding roundness and volume. DV10 has strong fermentation kinetics over a wide temperature range and has relatively low nitrogen demands. In addition, DV10 is low foaming with low VA and H2S production. All of these qualities make DV10 highly recommended for the production of the classic, premium still and sparkling white wine varietals, along with cider, fruit wines and mead. Best results from 50–85°F, alcohol tolerant up to 18%. DYW868 grams DYW86A80 grams DYW86B500 grams
Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Viognier, Sémillon A yeast strain that truly brings out aromatic components in white wines, especially Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Viognier and Semillion. Also a great choice for mead fermentations where it has a significant aroma/flavor input. Specifically Fruity/Floral aromas are emphasized through the natural liberation of terpenes found in these varieties. What we think is particularly unique about this strain is the creation of smoky/spicy aromas. Also selected as a commercial yeast strain for its ability to create mouth feel volume and richness. Lallemand recommends adding Go-Ferm Protect (AD343) during re-hydration and Fermaid K (AD345) to the ferment to ensure that this strain ferments to dryness. Best results from 54–77°F, alcohol tolerant up to 14%. DYW878 grams DYW87A80 grams DYW87B500 grams
Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Zinfandel, Nebbiolo, Chardonnay BM 4x4 is designed to provide all of the benefits and flavors of the BM45 yeast strain, along with a much more reliable and consistent fermentation. This means that you'll be getting all of the flavors of jam, rose petals, and cherry liquor with a stronger fermentation with less risk of a stuck or sluggish fermentation. This is a blend between the traditional BM45 and a complimentary strain, chosen for its fermentation kinetics. Positive interaction between these strains means a more dependable fermentation, along with increased aromatic intensity, color intensity, and length of finish. This strain will enhance varietal character, and mouthfeel in your wine. Alcohol tolerance of 15%. Fermentation range 64–82°F. DYW718 grams DYW71A80 grams DYW71B500 grams
Specifically for high quality cold soak Pinot Noir destined for aging Isolated, studied and selected from the prestigious Côte de Nuits terroir in Burgundy during a three-year research project by Laboratory Burgundia Oenologie in Beaune, France. The goal of this selection program was to find a dominant natural yeast strain from a traditional “cold soak” that would elaborate intense, complex and balanced Pinot Noir varietal character. The 3001 strain stood out from other strains. Wines made with it were noted for fruit and varietal characters that were both elegant and complex. This yeast has moderate nitrogen demands but will benefit from proper nutrition and aeration, these factors becoming increasingly important as your potential alcohol content rises above 13%. Tolerant to standard SO2 additions and low temperatures (down to 54°F) for a steady and reliable alcoholic fermentation following cold soak. Alcohol tolerance of 15%. Fermentation range 50–89°F. DYW738 grams DYW73A80 grams DYW73B500 grams
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé The most recent yeast selection from the ICV, Opale is an interesting strain that has been shown to enhance varietal characteristics in warm weather / high brix grapes which might otherwise produce neutral wines. Particular benefits have been shown in Chardonnay. A great selection for grapes that have ripened a bit too far. This strain has excellent fermentation qualities with a short lag phase and medium nitrogen requirements. Opale can produce significant amounts of SO2 and as such, may inhibit malolactic fermentation. Great strain for Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rose wines. Alcohol tolerant up to 14% and temperature range of 59–86°F. DYW758 grams DYW75A80 grams DYW75B500 grams
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé A notable strain for its ability to enhance Sauvignon Blanc characteristics while maintaining good fermentation kinetics. Wines fermented with SVG are described as having more intensity and a balance of mineral, citrus and spicy notes. This strain has moderate nutrient requirements. A great choice for enhancing natural varietal characteristics in Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, and other dry whites. SVG is an interesting strain for its ability to metabolize roughly 25% of the malic acid in a wine, naturally helping to lower a wine's acidity. Alcohol tolerance of 15%. Fermentation range of 61–79°F. DYW778 grams DYW77A80 grams DYW77B500 grams
Pinot Gris, Semillon, Chardonnay and Colombard Sensy™ yeast for whites and rosé was selected for its special ability to produce very low levels of SO 2 and H2S while completing rapid alcoholic fermentation under white winemaking conditions. Low acetaldehyde production is a great asset in helping to stabilize wines with low to moderate SO2 levels. Recommended for white wines, even under low temperature and NTU conditions. Sensy™ has a short lag phase and low nutrient demand. Respectful of varietal aromas, with balanced mouthfeel and freshness. Malolactic bacteria friendly.

Wine Nutrients Even though we may not realize it, wine yeast hydration is actually the first moment that we as winemakers have a direct effect on the ultimate success of our finished wines. A properly hydrated wine yeast is a healthy yeast, and the initial health of our yeast really does determine its ability to gracefully ferment our wines. Giving your yeast the nutrients they desire is an inexpensive and simple insurance plan. When yeast are in good health they have fewer problems and produce wines with consistently better flavor profiles. When yeast are under-fed, their metabolism is stressed and they can produce off-flavors like sulfides (H2S) and volatile acidity. Refer to our MoreManual! on yeast hydration for more information.

Specially designed to help with the hydration process Go-Ferm Protect is added directly into the water used to hydrate the wine yeast. By making this first nutrient dosage outside of the must, you are able to eliminate potential problems early on: namely the binding-up of certain nutrients by SO2 (making them unavailable to the yeast), and the possible, partial depletion of the nutrient addition due to the early feeding of other organisms that may have gotten into the must before the yeast have had a chance to reach the cell-density needed to begin the fermentation (again, lowering the level of nutrients ultimately available to the yeast). It is this “Go-Ferm Protect” addition that will ensure the wine yeast will receive the entire nutrient addition without any interference. This in turn translates to the start of a clean and healthy fermentation.
Added during fermentation, Fermaid K is a complex wine yeast nutrient formulation that provides DAP, free amino acids, yeast hulls, unsaturated fatty acids, sterols, and micronutrients such as magnesium sulfate, thiamin, folic acid, biotin, calcium pantothenate, and other vitamins and minerals. Fermaid K helps minimize H2S formation and keeps the yeast healthy throughout the entire fermentation. (1 g/gal Fermaid K = 25 ppm N). DAP A cheap source of inorganic Nitrogen. Best used to augment Nitrogen levels in a must if it is still lacking after using Fermaid K. (1 g/gal DAP = 50).
When to Make Additions First:
Add sulfites (SO2) & make sure to mix it evenly throughout the must. Wait at least 30 minutes before adding your yeast.
Second: Add your enzymes and Opti-Red/Booster Rouge.
If using fermentation tannins, wait 6 to 8 hours after the enzyme addition before adding them. Test the Brix (sugar) & pH, adjust if necessary.
Hydrate your yeast with Go-Ferm Protect & mix them into all of your must.
Fermentation Nutrients FermStart Yeast Rehydration Nutrient Start your fermentation right with FermStart by CellarScience®. FermStart is a concentrated, micronutrient blend that helps yeast during the critical phase in which they transition from dried and dormant back into healthy and active. FermStart is added to your rehydration water so that your yeast absorbs the nutrients as they absorb the water. Rehydrating with FermStart prior to pitching your yeast also has the added benefit of allowing the yeast access to the nutrients before wild yeast in the must can uptake them. Rehydrating with FermStart = Healthy Yeast Rehydrating your yeast is always recommended but is considered especially important at any Brix level above 14. Rehydrating with FermStart is the gold level of hydration and helps protect your yeast against initial osmotic pressures, competition from wild yeast, and alcohol toxicity. Proper hydration and healthy yeast have also shown to have a positive impact on flavor. How Much? FermStart is a super concentrated formula, which is very convenient when you are rehydrating large amounts of yeast. Use 1 gram of FermStart for every 4 grams of yeast. For suggested water amount, visit our website. For a full yeast nutritional plan, use FermStart when rehydrating your yeast, FermFed DAP Free at the onset of fermentation, and FermFed after 1/3 sugar depletion.

FermFed Yeast Nutrient Help your yeast reach the end of fermentation safely while producing amazing flavors with FermFed by CellarScience®. Yeast that are given FermFed have a higher likelihood of fermenting without issue while producing wines with more intense flavors and aromas. FermFed is a complex nutrient blend of diammonium phosphate, thiamin, amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, mannoproteins, protective microelements derived from yeast hulls, and vitamins B2, B5, B6, & B12. FermFed also contains the organic and inorganic nitrogen (DAP) that yeast need. How Much Do I Add and When? The recommendation that covers most fermentations is to add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed DAP Free at the onset of fermentation and then add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed after 1/3 sugar depletion. Mix the nutrients in a small slurry of water and add to the fermentation. Read on our website if you are interested in measuring YAN (Yeast Available Nitrogen) and adjusting your nutrient schedule accordingly. AD111A8 Grams AD111B80 Grams AD111D500 Grams AD111C1 Kilogram
FermFed DAP Free Yeast Nutrient Feed your fermentation with FermFed DAP Free by CellarScience®. The 100% natural formulation of FermFed DAP Free is derived from the autolysis of very specific yeast strains naturally high in free amino acids, sterols, mannoproteins, zinc, magnesium, and niacin, along with vitamins B1, B2, B5, B6, and B12 for a complete yeast health regimen. As the name suggests, this unique formulation does not contain the traditional inorganic diammonium phosphate, but does provide organically derived nitrogen. How Much Do I Add and When? The recommendation that covers most fermentations is to add 1.5 gram per gallon of FermFed DAP Free at the onset of fermentation and then add 1 gram per gallon of FermFed after 1/3 sugar depletion. Mix the nutrients in a small slurry of water and add to the fermentation.

Ensures Healthy Yeast And Reduces Fermentation Issues Go-Ferm Protect is a natural yeast nutrient that is added to the yeast hydration water before adding your selected yeast strain. Its complex formula provides your yeast with the proper sterols, unsaturated fatty acids and micronutrients needed to begin fermentation in optimal shape. The great thing about Go-Ferm Protect is the proper nutrients and vitamins are introduced BEFORE the yeast is added to the must. This way 100% of the nutrients are available to your selected yeast strain and won't be stolen away by any indigenous yeast or bacteria that may be present in the must before your yeast can become established. Use at a rate of 1.25 g per 1 g of yeast, which should then be mixed with 17 mls of water per 1 gal. of must. Go-Ferm Protect is usually used in conjunction with Fermaid K added after 1/3 sugar depletion. AD34310 Grams AD343A100 Grams AD343B625 Grams AD343D2.5 Kilograms
Added To The Must After 1/3 Sugar Depletion A complex formula that provides DAP, free amino acids, yeast hulls, unsaturated fatty acids, sterols, and micronutrients such as magnesium sulfate, thiamin, folic acid, biotin, calcium pantothenate, and other vitamins and minerals. Yeast use Nitrogen for protein synthesis and to maintain cellular growth. Nitrogen from the alpha amino acids contained in Fermaid K are utilized much more efficiently than from the ammonia salts. The fatty acids and sterols available in Fermaid K are important survival factors needed to maintain alcohol resistance and keep volatile acidity levels low. The cell wall fractions absorb medium chain fatty acids that are toxic to the yeast. They also provide nucleation sites to help keep the yeast in suspension. Add Fermaid K to fermenting wine after 1/3 sugar depletion. Our Winemaking consultant Shea Comfort uses the analogy of a marathon to describe when to use nutrients. Go-Ferm Protect is the snack before the race and Fermaid K is the mid-race power bar that gets your yeast through a healthy, problem-free ferment. You do not need to add additional fertilizers or DAP along with Fermaid K. Use approximately 1 gram per gallon. AD3458 Grams AD345E1 Ounce AD345B80 Grams AD345D500 Grams AD345C10 Kilograms
Added To The Must After 1/3 Sugar Depletion Fermaid O is an upgraded formulation of the same Fermaid K that winemakers everywhere have learned to trust their fermentations to. The main difference in composition between the two, is that the Fermaid O has replaced the inorganic DAP with an organic source. Fermaid O will boost the quality of wine, regardless of process! Lower heat production, less negative flavor compounds, better overall fermentation kinetics and flavors! Better performance will result in an overall better wine. Use at a rate of 1.5 grams per 1 gallon of must/juice. AD332A12 Grams AD332B120 Grams AD332C750 Grams AD332D2.5 Kilograms
Nutrient Vit End
For Difficult Or Stuck Fermentations Nutrient Vit End is a nutrient for assisting with difficult fermentations. It is a highly specific inactivated yeast, chosen for its high bio-adsorptive properties for binding short and medium chain fatty acids and fungicides. These compounds are produced by yeast during stressful fermentations, and in high enough concentration can result in a stuck ferment. Using Nutrient Vit End during fermentation will minimize the risk of a sluggish or stuck fermentation. It can also be used to detoxify a wine in place of yeast hulls before restarting a fermentation. This product is also useful for compromised fruit as it will help minimize potential toxins.
To Use: Suspend Nutrient Vit end in water, juice or wine and
mix well before adding to juice or must. For Must/Juice: Use at a rate of 1.25 g Nutrient Vit End per gallon of Must/Juice. For Sluggish or Stuck wine: Use at a rate of 1.5 g Nutrient Vit End per gallon of Must/Juice. PLEASE NOTE: when using with a stuck or sluggish fermentation allow to settle and rack off prior to restart. AD331A12 Grams AD331B120 Grams AD331C750 Grams
Diammonium Phosphate (DAP)
A source of nitrogen for yeast that is most commonly used with must that has low levels of YAN (Yeast Assimilable Nitrogen content). Low levels of YAN have been associated with the unwanted production of sulfides. Use 1/2–3/4 grams per gallon (1/2 tsp per 5 gallons) of must. AD3302 Ounces AD330LB1 Pound
For Stuck Or Sluggish Alcoholic Or Malolactic Fermentation Yeast Hull additions are usually the first action taken when you have a stuck or sluggish alcoholic or malolactic fermentation. Yeast Hulls are essentially dead yeast cells that absorb auto toxic yeast by-products that could be inhibiting your active yeast or ML culture from doing their job - finishing your fermentation! Yeast Hulls are then typically followed by Pro-Desert (DYW99) in the case of a stuck alcoholic fermentation or Acti ML in the case of a stuck ML ferment. As a side note, Yeast Hulls are included in the Fermaid K & Fremaid O mix of nutrients to help prevent problem ferments from the onset. The reason you would not use Fermaid K for most stuck ferments is that Fermaid K contains DAP. If DAP is added to the ferment past the point of metabolization by the yeast it could potentially leave an unwanted residual flavor. Use at the rate of .5 to .9 grams per gallon. If stored in a cool, dry place, will last up to 3 years. AD346A5 Grams AD34650 Grams AD346B1 Pound
SIY's SIY is an acronym for Specific Inactivated Yeast. Much like sur lie, or aging your wine on the yeast, when these natural, inactivated (dead) yeast cells are introduced to your wine, they give up various compounds that can naturally enhance flavors, improve mouthfeel, and soften or enhance tannins. They can be used throughout the winemaking process.
For Rounded, Smooth Tannin, High-End Red Wines An inactive yeast product that improves body, color stability and mouthfeel in red wines. Using Opti-Red in the must makes polysaccharides available to complex with polyphenols as soon as they are released and diffused. This early complexing results in red wines with more intense color, rounder mouthfeel and better tannin integration. Use in conjunction with Lallzyme EX for best results. We think the effect is very similar to using D254 yeast, which has a high degree of polysaccharide-tannin complexity. Use at the rate of 1 gram per gallon of red wine. Dilute Opti-Red in 4 times its weight of water or must and add at beginning of fermentation. AD3558 grams AD355B80 grams AD355C2.5 kilograms
For Color Stabilization And Body In White Wines A natural yeast product for white wines to increase mouthfeel, avoid browning, increase protein stability and volatile thiols and protect fresh aromas during aging. Opti-White is rich in polysaccharides and has high anti-oxidative properties. Use at the rate of 1.9 grams per gallon. Dilute Opti-White in 4 times its weight of water or must and add to wine at beginning of fermentation. AD35615 Grams AD356A150 Grams AD356C2.5 Kilograms
For Higher Tannin Intensity/Fresh Fruitiness In Red Wines Does your red wine need greater structure? Try “body building” with Booster Rouge. Booster Rouge is a natural yeast based product from the ICV yeast range. It offers greater perception of intense volume in the initial mouthfeel due to the perceived tannic intensity in red wine. Booster Rouge interacts between aromatic precursors and yeast macromolecules to help give an impression of enhanced fruit and freshness. It can also help reduce the perception of chemical, ethereal and burning or drying sensations. Booster Rouge aids in color stabilization and helps with the overall balance of the wine. Add to must at the beginning of fermentation. Booster Rouge shows good synergy with D80 and D21 when used in wines made from well ripened grapes. Use at the rate of 1 gram per gallon. AD5528 grams AD552A80 grams AD552B2.5 kilograms
For Better Body and Varietal Aroma With Less Vegetal Character Booster Blanc is a Specific Inactivated Yeast (SIY) developed from an ICV strain used for white and rosé wines. Booster Blanc helps to increase fresh varietal fruit aromas and midpalate intensity while helping to diminish bitterness and chemical/vegetal characteristics. Booster Blanc is very useful for maintaining the aroma and freshness of wines that go through MLF and helps lower the production of undesirable

sulfur compounds during fermentation. Add to the juice at the beginning of the fermentation. Recommended for whites, rosés, meads and fruit wines. Add Booster Blanc to 10 times its weight in water and add to the wine as soon as it is dissolved. Stir the entire wine volume completely to ensure homogenization. Use at a rate of 1 gram per gallon. AD5576 Grams AD557A60 Grams AD557B2.5 Kilograms
Contributes Softness To A Wine's Finish Developed by the ICV in France, Noblesse is a yeast derived additive for use in both red and white wines. Wines made with Noblesse exhibit a more intense perception of ripe fruit together with an overall roundness and softness in the finish. There is decreased tannic intensity in the mid-palate. ICV Noblesse can also help reduce undesirable aggressive characters or sensations of dryness. It can help reduce burning sensations common in higher alcohol wines and wines made from botrytised grapes. The production process for Noblesse inactivates sulfite-reductase potential, thereby greatly limiting production of off odors when it is used during fermentation. As an additive, immediate results are possible, although it may take 3 to 5 months for full integration into the wine. AD5568 Grams AD556A80 Grams AD556B2.5 Kilograms
Aging your wine on the lees (sur lie) in red and white wines is known to reduce the perception of acidity, eliminate specific harsh phenolics, increase the perception of sweetness, help protect against oxidation and improve mouthfeel. A naturally occurring peptide product that can be added to wine as early as late fermentation, Sur-Lie contributes the positive sensory impact of lees aging while drastically reducing time and labor. Contact with Sur-Lie for three to five weeks contributes similar flavor and mouth feel components as does six months of lees ageing and stirring. Recommended Dosage rate is 300-700 ppm (1.1 to 2.6 grams per gallon), as determined by lab trials. Store in a cool, dry place for several years while still sealed. Once opened, product can last for the same length of time if it can be kept isolated from any source of moisture. Examine stored, opened packages for signs of clumping before the season you plan to use it. AD55410 Grams AD554A100 Grams AD554B500 Grams
Fermentation Temps Ideal fermentation temps vary between yeast strains and wine styles. The yeast descriptions on pages 22–25 will tell you the fermentation temperature ranges for each yeast strain. As a general rule, red wines are typically fermented between 65–85˚F and whites are fermented between 45–60˚F.
ncapsulated yeast from Proenol are yeast contained within Alginate beads (a natural polysaccharide extracted from seaweed) that makes adding and removing the yeast very easy. The yeast are also acclimated to alcohol and other harsh conditions. We offer three different strains perfect for use with stuck fermentations, making dessert wines, and for the production of sparkling wines. See our website for full descriptions and directions.
For Making Sparkling Wine
ProElif QA23 is used for secondary fermentations when making sparkling wines. The beads can easily be added directly into the bottle. Upon completion of fermentation, the beads have a greater density than the wine and will quickly drop to the neck of the bottle when inverted. If desired, traditional freezing and disgorging methods can be used to finish the process. The beads accumulate more tightly than traditional riddling, therefore less wine is lost during disgorging. Alternatively, home winemakers can elect to simply leave the beads in the bottle and skip the disgorging process altogether. Refrigerate the bottles and then open them to add liqueur (sugar solution) to achieve the desired sweetness, and just re-close the bottle. DYW9783 grams
ProRestart Uvaferm 43 For Stuck Fermentations
If you have a stuck fermentation, using ProRestart® is a great deal easier than traditional restart methods because you don't have to build and acclimate a large colony of yeast. ProRestart® also decreases risks related to color loss and oxidation and preserves the flavor of the wine due to rapid sugar consumption without volatile acidity increase or other spoilage problems. Use 83 g per 30 gallons. Can be transferred to the next barrel after first barrel is finished. Comes with nylon mesh bag and full set of instructions. DYW9883 grams
Liquid Enzymes Scottzyme HC

This enzyme will assist in breaking down the fruit you work with to help extract more flavor and juice, as well as improving filterability and overall clarity. Works best in conjunction with PEC5L (AD361). AD360A1 Ounce AD360B8 Ounces
A highly concentrated pectinase blend designed specifically for winemaking. Used on crushed grapes for easier pressing and higher yields, and in juice for improved settling, clarification and filtration. Also useful for berries, pome and stone fruits. When adding to fruit, it is sometimes beneficial to use in conjunction with Scottzyme HC (AD360). AD361A1 Ounce AD361B8 Oounces
A specially formulated blend of enzymes, designed to assist in settling and filtration of pretty much anything. KS standing for "Kitchen Sink", this enzyme is the be-all end-all when it comes to enzymatic preparation of a wine for filtration. This enzyme is best used early in processing, however should never be used before pressing, as the heavy increase in fine solids can clog presses. AD362A 1 ounce AD362B 8 ounces
Enzymes Lallzyme EX
Specially-formulated enzyme preparation for improved color intensity and stability, greater mouthfeel, and enhanced fruity, floral, spicy flavors in red wine. Aids in the extraction, then stabilization of water-soluble phenols found in cells of grape skins. Mix with warm water and mix into must. AD3510.8 Grams AD351B8 Grams AD351C100 Grams
Lallzyme Cuvee Blanc
Enzyme for maceration/skin contact when dealing with white wine grapes. Will give greater mouthfeel and more complex aromatics. Minimum contact time is 4 hours, however, 6–12 hours is best. If you macerate more than 4 hours, you will need to keep the temp. of the must below 55°F and do an SO2 addition at the crush. AD3530.8 Grams AD353A8 Grams AD353B100 Grams
Lallzyme C Max is a specially formulated enzyme preparation for the rapid clarification and de-pectinization of white juice. The unique combination of pectinases allows for quick reduction juice viscosity and promotes fast sedimentation and clarification.

Lallzyme EX-V is an enzyme designed for use on premium red wines that are intended for long aging. Premium reds will benefit from the use of this enzyme tremendously, as it will result in a more structured wine, with deep, stable color. Lallzyme EX-V has a specific action on both grape cell walls and cell membranes allowing for a complete and rapid release of anthocyanins and a more efficient release of tannins, leading to stable anthocyanin-tannin bonding. The end result of this bonding is a more structured wine, with a deep stable color that will last throughout its years of aging. Lallzyme EX-V also increases the release of aromatic compounds while respecting the varietal characteristics of the grape. AD358A0.6 Grams AD358B6 Grams AD358C100 Grams
nological tannins, sometimes called finishing tannins, offer the winemaker the possibility to add refined, highly-bindable tannin to your wine at any stage during the process. Benefits can include increased structure and mouthfeel, color stabilization, stability, anti-oxidative qualities, and overall complexity. Tannins can reduce vegetal/ herbaceous characteristics and perceived astringency.
Added post fermentation to improve the overall structure and to help protect the wine from oxidation during aging. It is composed of proanthocyanidins and ellagic tannins that integrate easily into young wines. Tannin Complex was specially developed to add structure and a soft mid palate to premium red wines without harshness or a forward oak finish. It can also enhance the varietal fruit character while adding complexity to the finish. Helps stabilize wines by improving the polyphenolic composition. It is especially useful when aging wines in older tannin-leached barrels and with full, fruity, lower tannin varietals like Syrah and Zinfandel. TAN2303 Grams TAN230A30 Grams TAN230B1 Kilogram
Tannin Riche Extra
Added During Aging To Enhance Structure and Complexity
Tannin Riche Extra is a 100% American oak tannin that has been lightly toasted to impart a soft, aromatic character while enhancing the structure and organoleptic complexity of a wine. Will impart hints of coconut, a heightened vanillin oak character with a smooth finish to your wines. Although designed for fine-tuning a wine, Tannin Riche Extra still maintains the regular properties associated with the use of tannins such as helping with clarification, stability, oxidation, and aging. Works well in conjunction with low doses of other tannins (i.e: Tannin Complex & FT Blanc Soft). TAN2401.8 Grams TAN240A18 Grams TAN240B500 Grams
Fermentation Tannins FT Rouge
Add During The Initial Stages of Fermentation Designed specifically for North American red wine fermentations, FT Rouge is composed of exotic wood and chestnut tannins. These highly reactive tannins bind with anthocyanins (color compounds) in the first 3-4 days of fermentation. If sufficient natural tannins are not present in must, anthocyanins may precipitate, resulting in a loss of color. Using an enzyme like Lallzyme EX in conjunction with FT Rouge can enhance this binding of color. The continual bonding going on throughout the
ferment will also improve the mid palate structure and help either significantly reduce or eliminate vegetal/herbaceous characters. Tannin additions at this early stage prove to be most efficient and are better integrated into the wine. TAN22010 Grams TAN220A100 Grams TAN220C5 Kilograms
FT Blanc Soft
Specialty Tannin For Whites, Rosés, Fruit Wines, Meads & Cider
FT Blanc Soft is a specially formulated, colorless tannin derived from Gall Nuts. When used at the beginning of the fermentation, FT Blanc Soft helps provide protection from oxidation so more of the wines delicate aromas and flavors are preserved. In addition, FT Blanc Soft's continual bonding throughout the fermentation improves mouthfeel and helps significantly reduce or eliminate vegetal/herbaceous characters and bitterness. FT Blanc Soft imparts a perception of sweetness without contributing any sugars, along with a low-level, beneficial minerality. NOTE: FT Blanc Soft can also be used as an ageing tannin post-fermentation as well! TAN2503 Grams TAN250A30 Grams TAN250B1 Kilograms
Other Additives Tartaric Acid
Preferred acid for adjusting acid levels in wine. 3.8 g per gallon adjusts acidity by +.1%. As a note: some tartaric acid will drop out of suspension as Potassium Bitartrate if you are doing any cold stabilization. You might want to re-test total acidity after cold stabilization.

3.4g per gallon adjusts acidity by +.1%. It will lower pH less than will tartaric acid. Malic is less sour than tartaric acid and can be used to make acid adjustments in Rieslings, Gewurztraminer, and Muscat varieties, though many winemakers still prefer to use tartaric acid in these situations. You would not want to add Malic acid to any wine that will undergo a malolactic fermentation. NOTE: only half of the artificially added malic acid will convert to lactic acid during a malolactic fermentation. AD6302 Ounces AD630LB1 Pound
Used to reduce the hazing effect of pectins when using real fruit in your beer, wines, or meads. Mix 2 tsp with cold water and add to 5 - 6 gallon of product.

The effects that Liqui-Gum can have on the richness of your wine is worth a test. Made from a specialized, pre-liquefied Gum Arabic preparation, Keller’s Liqui-Gum has notable positive impacts on mouthfeel and color stability. Liqui-Gum has also been shown to improve the quality of the carbonation and mouthfeel in sparkling wines. Liqui-Gum should be added either just before or just after the final filtration and bottling of the wine. As an added key feature, the Liqui-Gum preparation from Keller has been pre-filtered in the factory and is certified to leave filter media down to 0.45 microns clear and unclogged. We suggest performing bench trials to determine the most advantageous dosage. AD55536 grams AD555A360 grams AD555C5 kilograms

Malolactic Bacteria Malolactic Fermentation Malolactic fermentation (MLF) is performed by a special bacteria that converts malic acid into lactic acid, CO2 and water. Not only is there a reduction in acidity because Lactic acid is only half as acidic as Malic acid, but there is also a significant impact on flavor. Different strains of malolactic bacteria each produce their own flavors, which we have attempted to describe. Malolactic fermentations are used in most red wines provided that there is enough (naturally or through addition) acid to support a reduction. Red wines made without the malolactic fermentation will have a brightness, sometimes sharpness, from the presence of the malic acid. Since most commercial red wines have been through malolactic fermentation, a flavor profile with a bright, sharp malic acid presence may seem odd or inappropriate. In white wines like Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs, malolactic fermentations are sometimes performed and sometimes not. Certain strains have been known to produce butter flavors, however several strains do not. In fruit forward white wines like Rieslings, Gewürztraminer and Muscats it is not usual to inoculate with malolactic. With the exception of the traditional Viniflora strain, we generally recommend adding your Malolactic Bacteria after your primary fermentation is finished. ML added during the ferment will compete with the yeast for nutrients and are antagonistic to yeast, sometimes causing problems resulting in stuck or stalled fermentations. However, many wineries and customers do add the ML during the ferment with good luck. IMPORTANT NOTE: Once opened you cannot store Malolactic bacteria for future use. Once opened, use entire pack immediately.
Dry Malolactic Bacteria Viniflora
Good for 66 gallons. Manufactured by Christian Hansen laboratories. Malolactic cultures are bacteria that convert harsher malic acid to lactic acid. They are often used in red wines to mellow them and sometimes in Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to provide the buttery notes. This culture is added 2–3 days into the initial ferment while the alcohol levels are lower. This was the original ML strain that most winemakers used. There are superior strains now available such as the other eight strains that we offer. DYWM2.5 grams
Alpha is characterized by its ability to respect the wines varietal aromas and flavors while lifting mouthfeel. Enoferm Alpha was selected because it has the potential to ferment at lower temperatures and at lower pH levels. In addition to good performance in harsh conditions, Enoferm Alpha was preferred in blind tasting for its clean and fruity aromas, a decrease of vegetative and herbaceous notes and increased mouth-feel. It works well in low pH (down to 3.2), low temperature conditions (down to 12°C or 54°F) or high levels of total SO2. It is a fast starter. 2.5 grams is good for up to 66 gallons. 25 grams is good for 660 gallons. DYWM12.5 grams DYWM1B25 grams
Beta was isolated in Italy and is best used to enhance structure, red berry varietal character, and spicy characteristics in reds. It derives the Beta name from the capacity to encourage higher levels of beta-damascenone and beta-ionone that contribute floral notes, especially in Merlot as shown in trials conducted near Bordeaux. It was selected due to it’s good performance under difficult wine conditions, positive sensory contribution,
and security from its low use of sugars and very low volatile acid as well as biogenic amine production. In winery trials, Enoferm Beta was able to induce MLF at temperatures as low as 55°F. It is a low diacetyl (buttery flavor) producer. It is a good choice to enhance structure and body, while reducing astringency and bitterness. The strain is pH tolerant to 3.2, temperature tolerant down to 12°C (54°F) and alcohol tolerant to 14% (v/v). 2.5 grams is good for up to 66 gallons. 25 grams is good for 660 gallons. DYWM22.5 grams DYWM2B25 grams
VP41 was isolated in the Abruzzi region of Italy during an extensive European Union collaboration for use in red and white wines. VP41 was chosen for its steady fermentation, high alcohol tolerance (up to 15% v/v), enhanced mouthfeel and wine structure. This strain will ferment well with a pH above 3.2 and total SO2 levels up to 50–60 ppm. In red wines, increased spicy, cherry and red fruit flavors have been noted. Perhaps the two most significant factors to note about this strain is its ability to work in a higher SO2 environment and the contribution VP41 will make to mouthfeel. Red and white wines fermented with VP41 have increased richness and complexity. Good for up to 66 gallons. DYWM32.5 grams
VP31 performs as well as Alpha under stressful conditions such as low pH or low temperatures. It has a slower start than Alpha but catches up and finishes quickly. VP31 is noted for its good sensory balance in reds and whites. It was chosen by the ICV in France for use in white and red wines for high activity and positive flavor characteristics. In white wines it is known for acid reduction, light buttery flavor, respect for fruit, increased body and length of finish. In red wines it is known for increasing berry fruit flavors and mouthfeel. VP31 is a good strain for use at temperatures as low as 15°C (59°F). It is the strain that is the most tolerant of low pH (3.1). Good for up to 66 gallons. DYWM52.5 grams
Viniflora CH16 is a freezedried pure culture of Oenococcus oeni. This malolactic bacterium has been carefully selected to induce malolactic fermentation in red wine with high alcohol levels, after direct inoculation. Viniflora CH16 has been isolated from a 16% Petit Syrah wine in the Russian River area of California. The bacterium’s natural environment gives a good picture of its application; CH16 has been carefully selected for its outstanding ability to conduct fast malolactic fermentation in high alcohol red wine (up to 16% v/v) with a pH value above 3.4. Viniflora CH16 should be added to dry wine, immediately after the alcoholic fermentation. Viniflora CH16 should always be inoculated directly into the wine. No rehydration or reactivation is required. Good for up to 66 gallons. DYWM71.5 grams
Viniflora CH35 is a freezedried culture of Oenococcus oeni. This malolactic bacteria has been selected and adapted specifically for direct inoculation of rosé and white wines. Viniflora CH35 has been selected for its outstanding performance in malolactic fermentation of difficult white wines. This strain is the perfect match for rosé and white wines but can also be used with success in red wines. Viniflora CH35 should be added to dry wine, right after the alcoholic fermentation. No rehydration or reactivation is required. Good for up to 66 gallons. DYWM82.5 grams
Liquid Malolactic Bacteria Wyeast Malolactic Culture 4007 A liquid Malolactic culture containing a blend of ER1A and Ey2d malolactic cultures suitable for a fermentation pH of 2.9 or above and temperatures as low as 55°F. ER1A, an excellent choice for red wines, has been isolated for its tolerance to low pH conditions. Ey2D has been selected for its tolerance to low cellar temperatures. Good for 5 gallons of wine. PLEASE NOTE: Wyeast Malolactic Culture is best when used within 6 months of the manufacturer’s date and when stored between 34–40°F. Basic Instructions: 1. Shake well and sanitize package 2. Pour into 5 gallons of wine or must after fermentation has completed. 3. Maintain fermentation temperature of 55–75°F. Additional Information: • UV Light Barrier Package • 100% Guaranteed Pure • Refrigerate between 34–40°F (1–4°C). • Do not freeze DYWM6125 ml
White Labs Malolactic Culture WLP675 A direct pitch liquid Malolactic culture for 6 gallons of wine. This ML culture from White Labs is specially designed to meet the needs of home winemakers. It is tolerant of a wide range of temperatures and pHs and will not have a significant impact on flavor, aroma or mouthfeel. PLEASE NOTE: White Labs recommends pitching this strain at around 5 Brix remaining sugar in your primary fermentation. MoreWine! recommends that you follow the manufacturer's suggestion in this regard, but that you still rack off your gross lees within 48 hours of pressing and that you continue to stir the fine lees twice a week until the end of malolactic fermentation. Vital Stats: • pH tolerant down to 3.0 • Low temperature tolerant down to 55°F • Alcohol tolerant to 15% abv • Free SO2 should be less than 10ppm DYWM9

Lysozyme can be used to control both Red and White Wine Malo Fermentation. Applications: • To eliminate indigenous malolactic bacteria and delay the onset of ML until you pitch a cultured ML strain • To block malolactic fermentation • When blending partial and complete MLF wines • For sluggish or stuck fermentation • Stabilizing wine after MLF is complete To Use: Make a 10% solution of Lysozyme in water (100 grams per liter of water). Add directly to must, juice or wine and mix well. Allow 24 to 48 hours for reaction to complete. AD35250 grams AD352A150 grams AD352C1 kilogram
esearch by Lallemand has shown that there is a strong advantage to putting your ML bacteria through a similar rehydration/nutrition regimen to what is used for yeast fermentations. As a result they have fine tuned their Acti-ML product which we have been carrying for years, and added a second nutrient called Opti Malo Plus. Using these two nutrients together significantly increases the likelihood that you will get through your MLF easily and quickly. Use Acti-ML during rehydration of your bacteria to give them the best start possible, then use Opti Malo Plus as a nutrient to help get them all the way through the MLF.
Acti-ML is a Malolactic nutrient used during rehydration of both direct inoculation and standard-type Malolactic Bacteria strains. It is a specific blend of inactive yeasts rich in amino acids, mineral cofactors and vitamins. These inactive yeasts are mixed with cellulose to provide more surface area to help keep the bacteria in suspension. Acti-ML can help strengthen the development of bacteria growth under difficult conditions. Please note that due to its unique formulation, only Acti-ML can be used in the hydration phase of malolactic bacteria. Other ML nutrient formulas are not compatible with this protocol and their use during the hydration phase could severely limit the bacteria's viability! Acti-ML serves an analogous function to Go-Ferm Protect in yeast fermentations. To Use: Mix Acti-ML into 5 times its weight in 25°C (77°F) chlorinefree water. Add your bacterial culture, then wait 15 minutes before adding to the wine. Recommended Dosage: Use the 50 g packet with any of the other 2.5 g strains that we carry (remember that a 2.5 g sachet can be used for up to 66 gal of wine.)

Opti Malo Plus
Opti Malo Plus is a natural nutrient developed by Lallemand specifically for Malolactic Fermentation. It is a blend of inactive yeasts rich in amino acids, mineral cofactors, vitamins, cell wall polysaccharides and cellulose. The cellulose provides surface area to keep the bacteria in suspension and to help adsorb toxic compounds that may be present at the end of primary fermentation. Opti Malo Plus serves similarly in function to Fermaid-K for yeast fermentations. To Use: Suspend in a small amount of wine or water (just enough to dissolve it) and add to your wine at the same time as the Malolactic bacteria. Opti Malo Plus should not be added directly to the rehydration water. Use at a rate of 1 gram per gallon of wine. AD3496 grams AD349A60 grams AD349C1 Kilogram

Fans & Accessories
Kreyer Fan Coolers
Cool your cellar using your existing glycol system. These units work under the same principles as standard refrigeration but use cooled glycol that you already have instead of cooled refrigerant gas, eliminating the need to have a separate refrigeration system. It is a fantastic use of your glycol system for a majority of the year when typically glycol systems are on but are being sporadically called upon. Glycol systems do need to be sized to accommodate both these fan units and peak duty during fermentation to be able to accommodate all tasks at once.
Glycol from your main glycol chiller is recirculated through these fan units. Aluminum fins act as heat exchangers drawing heat out of your room as the fins are cooled by the glycol. The heat exchangers inside the units are made from corrugated aluminium fins and internally grooved copper tubes. The white ABS casing looks great. Because of its rounded corners it has no water retaining areas favorable to germ development. The SD series has been designed especially for larger spaces and have a more powerful fan. MR units are designed for smaller spaces and have a quieter fan. A. SD Coolers The SD series are professional grade heat exchangers designed to cool wine cellars.

M. CoolBot Cooler Controller
CoolBot allows a standard air conditioner to cool a room or space down to 35°F. Installs with no tools or electrical knowledge required. Standard A/C units available from any hardware or appliance store have lots of power but they are electronically limited so that they cannot go below 60°F because they freeze up. The CoolBot uses multiple sensors, a heating element and programmed micro-controller allowing the unit to go below 60°F without freezing up. It is perfect for wine cellars, fermentation, etc. Features: • Turn any well-insulated room into a walk-in cooler • Easy to install with no tools in 30 min. or less • Drops the temperature to as low as 34ºF without freezing up your air conditioner • Efficient, use about 40% less electricity FE63
N. Digital Temp Controller
Control a cooling or heating device to within 1°F Precisely control the temperature of your fermentation, or create a simulated, constant-temperature “cellar” for the long term storage of wine.
To control temperatures you can place the probe inside the space that is being cooled or heated or you can place the probe directly into the ferment using our Stopper Thermowell (FE624), or Coupler Thermowell (FE622.) You can change from cooling to heating mode directly from the digital control panel. When in cooling mode and hooked up to a refrigerator or other cooling device, the controller turns the compressor on when the ambient temperature rises above your set point. When in heating mode and hooked up to a heater, such as our FermWrap (Page 20), the controller turns on the heater when the temperature drops below your set point. A FermWrap around a fermenter can be the ideal solution for helping MaloLactic finish the job. Features an adjustable differential down to within one degree in both heating and cooling modes. You can precisely control an environment to within one degree of your set point. The included sensor probe monitors the temperature while the digital readout displays it in either °F or °C. Temperature Range of -30° to 220˚F. Manufactured by Ranco. FE601
Temperature Controllers K
O. Digital Two-Stage Temp Controller
Control cooling and heating simultaneously Easily control two different temperature regulating devices. Our two-stage controller comes pre-wired with dual AC outlets. One outlet is controlled by one relay, the other by a second relay. The most common application is to use one stage to heat and the other to cool. This means you can simultaneously control a heater and a cooling device, never having to manually switch between heating and cooling modes. FE602
P. The Temperature Tamer
• Individually control the temperature of a bin or tank • Ideal for cooling macro bin ferments with cooling snakes The Temperature Tamer hangs from the side of a bin or tank and has a built-in temperature controller that monitors the temperature and allows coolant or heated water to enter a snake, plate or jacket to maintain your ideal temperature. Theoretically you could be lowering the temperature of a red wine ferment to 85°F in one tank while you cold stabilized a white wine at 30°F in the next. Example set-up for cooling macro bins: Using a glycol systems run an outgoing & incoming loop of ½" line that is always recirculating cold glycol. Wherever you have a bin that needs cooling, tee your Temp. Tamer input into the feed line and the output in the return line of the main loop.
Key Features & Specs: • Built-in Ranco controller allows for heating or cooling • Temperature range of -30° to 220°F • Will maintain a ferment or tank within one degree of your set point. • Controller opens & closes the solenoid valve to start or stop the flow of coolant • If used in a tank, you need to insert the thermal sensor into a thermowell mounted or welded on your tank GLY9119
Temp Tamer in Action Three Temperature Tamers hooked up to cooling snakes in macro bins and cooled by one glycol system. Each bin can be set at its own temperature. The ultimate control for macro bin ferments.

Racking & Transferring Racking is the process of transferring wine from one container to another. Racking by siphon is the most common way for small volumes. With small volumes, racking is usually done by gravity using a simple siphon set-up. This is a good, low-cost solution that works well and is ideal if you only have a couple of carboys. However, there is a catch: since siphoning relies on gravity, the transferring vessel must be situated higher than the receiving one in order for the process to be effective. If you are using a vessel larger than a carboy, this setup may not be physically possible. An alternate method of transferring the wine will be preferable. In addition, siphon set-ups are pretty slow, which mayor not be a factor for you if you happen to be working with larger volumes.

Sulfites Potassium Metabisulfite (“Sulfite”, “Meta”, “SO2”) (AD500) is used in winemaking in the post-crush/pre-inoculate stage for killing unwanted bacteria and wild yeast, thereby effectively creating a “clean slate” for the more desirable and SO2-tolerant cultured yeasts to get in and do their job. It’s used as a general sanitizer at all stages of the winemaking process. Post-ferment, it also prevents the enzymatic browning of white wines and guards against premature oxidation in both reds and whites. It preserves freshness and color and it stabilizes a wine, thereby extending the shelf life of your labors.
A. Campden Tablets (Potassium Metabisulfite)
In wine, used to suppress naturally occurring microorganisms and prevent spoilage. Also works as an antioxidant. Add at a rate of 1 tab/ gallon to achieve 75 ppm free SO2. These tablets use potassium metabisulphate as opposed to sodium metabisulphate. Potassium based campden tablets are generally preferred by winemakers who do not want to add excess sodium into their wine. Can also be added to water to remove chloramine (1 tab is sufficient for roughly 5-20 gallons)
AD53025 Tablets AD530LB1 Pound Bag AD5305LB5 Pound Bag
B. Potassium Metabisulfite (Powdered)
If a wine does not contain the required amount of SO2, chances are that it won’t gracefully make it past one year in the bottle (depending on the pH). As all wine benefits from the aging process, wouldn’t it make sense to try and understand what we need to do in order to make sure it will go the distance? To begin with, the actual amount needed is quite small, and is referred to as “ppm” (parts per million). There are two forms of sulfite that you need to be aware of: Bound SO2 and Free SO2. When you make your SO2 addition, a portion of it binds with elements in the must or wine (acetaldehyde, yeast, bacteria, sugars, and oxygen) and is referred to as bound. The rest of the addition remains unbound and is referred to as free. It is this latter portion that we are interested in because only the free SO2 brings you all of the previously mentioned benefits that your wine both needs and deserves. The goal with SO2 additions is to try to use the least amount needed in order to attain a beneficial saturation level while trying to avoid adding too much, which would flaw the wine by giving it a sulfite smell and/or taste. What makes adjusting to this ideal level interesting is that the actual amount of SO2 that will end up as free after you make your addition actually varies in direct relation to the pH of the must or wine! In short, the higher the pH the more SO2 will be needed, and conversely, the lower the pH the less SO2 will be needed to attain the ideal level. Take a moment now to look at the chart to the left and you will see how this all comes together. Read more in our Red winemaking manual & our FREE MoreManual on SO2 Management. The guide is available as a booklet on page 29 (BK585) or as a free download on our website.

The most common form of Metabisulfite is as a powder. ¼ tsp adds 50ppm to 5 gallons of must. Opened Metabisulfite loses potency with time and should be replaced every year to assure that you are getting correct levels. You can use old Metabisulfite to make solutions for sanitizing equipment.

C. Sorbistat K B
(Potassium Sorbate) Sorbistat K, Potassium Sorbate, ensures against renewed fermentation in wine when residual sugar is added after the initial ferment. Add at the rate of .5 to .75 grams per gallon (125–200 ppm) in conjunction with .3 grams of sulfite (50 ppm) per gallon. Use the higher end of the range (200 ppm) as the wine’s pH approaches or exceeds 3.5 or when the alcohol content of the wine is below 10%. Potassium Sorbate should not be used if the wine underwent an ML fermentation because Sorbic Acid (in the Potassium Sorbate) can react with lactic bacteria to produce a “geranium” smelling off-flavor. NOTE: Sorbistat K will not stop an active fermentation. AD52030 Grams AD520LB1 Pound
Inert Gas Bottle Sparger
Quick-Disconnects For Gas Lines
Inert gas like nitrogen or argon can be used a few different ways during the winemaking process. Whether you use it to flush a vessel before transferring your wine to prevent oxidation, or using it to push your wine from one container to another, using inert gas will definitely prove to be beneficial for your wine.
Macro Oxygenation Macro-oxygenation is the process of dissolving oxygen into your fermenting wine during fermentation. Our general procedure is to apply 2-5 milligrams per liter of must per day, starting once at cap formation, once the next day, and upto 2-3 days past that point. Exactly how much oxygen per dose and how many applications depends on the grapes you are working with and the style of wine you want to make. One benefit of macro-oxygenation is the promotion of yeast growth and general yeast health which results in stronger finishes and full flavored wines. Other benefits are said to include increased color depth and stability. In our experimentation, the oxygenation has helped to soften the wine, by reducing the sensation of tannins, while simultaneously allowing more fruit to come through.
Keep your wine from oxidizing! We use Argon because of its high molecular weight, but CO2 will work. From extended macerations (we gas before and after laying plastic wrap over the cap) to topping up storage tanks (we use it before setting the floating lid), this is a great way to make sure no excess oxygen is getting into your wine. This can also be used to purge any tank before filling with the wine. Designed to mate with an H550B Quick disconnect installed in the standing end of your 5/16" gas line. KEG850
D. Gas Bleeder
For Variable Volume Tanks Protect your wine from oxidation! If you store wine in a variable volume tank in an environment that is not perfectly temperature controlled and the temperature drops, the wine in the tank will contract. As the wine contracts it creates a vacuum and pulls air into the tank. Even in a temperature controlled environment sampling will pull in small amounts of air. The solution is to replace your airlock with our MoreWine! Inert Gas Bleeder. The Diaphragm Bleeder Regulator (see call out above) allows for inert gas to be pulled through a one way valve on demand without putting actual pressure on the tank. If the temperature increase and the wine expands the excess pressure also vents out of this Bleeder Regulator. If you plan to use Variable Volume tanks for long term storage we strongly recommend these systems as a safeguard against oxidation. The correct pressure to set the tank regulator is 2–5 psi. The bleeder valve has an auto blow off at 10 psi, so having the regulator any higher than that will cause the bleeder valve to vent to the atmosphere and thus drain your gas tank. Includes: • Tank lid connection • Diaphragm bleeder regulator • Tubing to connect to a high-pressure gas regulator WE399
Gas Bleeder System allows CO2 to be blown off but pulls in inert gas "on demand" if liquid volume contracts during storage Gas Diaphragm Bleeder Regulator allows gas to be pulled in "on demand" when there is a vacuum. Let's CO2 escape when there is pressure. Applies no positive pressure to the tank.

Macro Oxygenation The OxyWand™ Kit
Use the OxyWand™ to infuse oxygen into your must during the start of fermentation to feed yeast and to reduce volatile sulfur compounds (VSC's) with a process called Macro Oxygenation. It is actually very easy to do. Insert the wand, turn on oxygen, and leave it on only while you punch the cap. After three days or when your wine has reached 10% alcohol stop oxygenating. Yeast use the oxygen as a nutrient to produce healthy cell walls which helps to eliminate issues throughout fermentation. Healthy yeast also produce better flavors and produce less Volatile Sulfur Compounds. You can also actually smell the must become fresher and more fruity while oxygenating as VSC's are driven off. Note that in styles like Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc where sulfur compounds are part of the flavor profile you would want to reduce the amount of Macro Oxygenation in frequency and/or duration. Macro Oxygenation also has the benefits of locking up color and rounding tannins. FE39126" long 0.5 Micron
The OxyWand can be used during red wine fermentations to help promote yeast health while simultaneously reducing undesirable sulphur based compounds. To learn more read our MoreManual! called Oxygen & Fermentation available on our website. For kit winemaking the OxyWand can also be used to degas wine by pumping in nitrogen to strip out excess CO2 left in solution. FE39226" long 0.5 Micron FE39326" long 2 Micro

Oak Barrels Benefits of a Barrel: A barrel provides all the amazing structure/flavor benefits that oak has to offer with the added advantages of micro-oxygenation and flavor concentration. These benefits are imparted to wine slowly over time.
Disadvantages of a Barrel: A barrel is a porous material that can harbor spoilage organisms if not properly handled. For more information please see our MoreManual on Barrel Care.
30 Gallons & Smaller: Barrels under 60 gallons and especially under 30 gallons have a large surface area to volume ratio that shortens the time your wine can spend in the barrel before being over oaked.
American, French or Hungarian? American Oak will be more aromatic, but French and Hungarian have better structuring abilities. When you smell oak in a wine or a wine seems over oaked, chances are it's American Oak. French and Hungarian oak do not provide as much aromatics and oak flavor as American. They provide body, structure and an integrated depth of flavor. Hungarian oak is the least impactful of the three and is often used by commercially to retain the ‘fruit’ in a wine.
Different Coopers: Barrels made from the same species of oak but from different coopers will have amazing differences due to different forests that have been used, how and where the oak was seasoned (air dried), coopering techniques and especially the different toasting methods used.
Toasting Levels: After selecting the type of oak to use you will need to choose a toast level. We have been told by more than one cooper that toasting has the biggest impact on flavor, much more than the source of the wood or the length of aging. The duration and the intensity of the heat during the coopering and toasting process has a tremendous effect on the amount of individual compounds that are produced in a barrel. There are three common levels of toasting: Medium, Medium Plus, and Heavy.
Flavors of the Toast: 1. The lighter the toast, the more tannins (structure) and lactones (coconut) will be present. 2. The heavier the toast, the more spice and smoke notes will be present 3. As the toast gets heavier so do the caramel tones, moving into butterscotch flavors at a medium plus level of toast. 4. Vanillin will increase up through a medium-plus toast and then decrease with a heavy toast. 5. Medium Plus is the most complex of all of the toast levels and the default toast level we use with our barrels. We recommend you use Medium Plus toast. 6. Heavy toasts are not recommended for smaller barrels and are sparingly used in commercial wineries as part of a blend. 7. Medium toast features more coconut flavors.
A. Saint-Martin French 30 Gal Barrel
Imported from France, these are some of our favorite small oak barrels. François Saint-Martin, a third generation cooper, crafts Bordeaux style barrels for winemakers throughout the world. His emphasis has always been on crafting low-impact, elegant barrels that respect the fruit in your wine. It starts with the oak... these smaller barrels are made from the same premium-quality French Oak used to produce all of the world class Saint Martin barrels. Tight grain and high in phenolic extractives that add body and texture to your wine. The toast... fire toasted to a unique Medium Long toast that is between a medium and medium plus toasting level. If we took a 30 gallon barrel and a 60 gallon barrel and toasted them to identical levels you would find that the 30 gallon barrel had more toast impact on your wine. It many cases the medium plus level in a 30 gallon barrel is too much for most wines. The unique Medium Long toast is a great solution. The toasting fire is kept at a lower intensity but the barrel actually stays on the fire longer than a medium plus toasted barrel would. This results in very rich flavors that will taste very similar to wine aged in a 60 gallon Medium Plus toasted barrel. Your fruit is respected and not stepped on and you impart great structure and rich toast flavors... ideal? Yes! Features • 24 month air-dried, 20mm thick split oak staves • Premium, blended Central France forest origins • Medium Long toast for lighter, longer barrel impact • Bung size approx. 1-10/16" • Includes solid silicone bung We import these barrels once per year so they are normally only available during and directly after harvest.

Oak Alternatives Using Chips, Cubes, Segments, Staves & Stix Chips Versus Cubes, Segments, Staves/Stix: When comparing cubes, segments, or staves/stix to chips, it is important to keep in mind the following: chips are often made from lower quality, un-seasoned wood and depending on the source this will most likely come through in the finished wine with various degrees of harshness. That being said, there are exceptions and some suppliers such as MoreWine! do get their chips from actual cooperages (instead of a cabinet shop or furniture mill…) and the flavors and aromas from these can be quite good.
WineStix® Oak Alternatives
ineStix are a convenient way to impart very high quality, convection toasted oak to your wine. Convection toasting, as opposed to fire toasting, offers a more uniform toast level throughout the product. Many like this toasting method for its consistency, depth of flavor and overall flavor impact for each ounce of oak used. Winestix imports their tight-grain French Oak from the Allier region of France where it is harvested and air dried in France for 24 months. Winestix American Oak is uniquely made from tight-grain New York Oak. Milled and air dried in New York for two years, oak that is grown and seasoned in this area is getting a reputation for a more subtle Vanillin and a fantastic overall complexity when compared with other American oak.
Chips Are Not A Complete Oaking Solution: Chips should be viewed as a tool rather than a complete oaking solution because of their thin shape and size. During toasting, due to their lack of mass, chips react quite quickly to the heat and they all toast to a consistent level, leaving them monochromatic and simpler in flavor. In addition to the toasting issues, the smaller size of the chips makes for a full release of all of its compounds in a very short period of time. This may be great for quickly getting toasted oak components into a fermentation (indeed, this is probably the single best use for the chips), but when the ideal is a slow and steady extraction rate over a period of several months to a year or so, a winemaker should probably forego the chips in favor of cubes or staves.
WineStix® Carboys Stix
Use one WineStix per 5–6.5 gallon carboys. WineStix will easily fit through the mouth of a glass carboy, and can be attached to a string via the drilled hole for easy removal. Allow for at least a 2–3 month minimum extraction time. 1" W x 17" Long. ®
Cubes, Segments & Staves = Top Quality : Get the same quality of oak flavor that you would receive from a new barrel with StaVin's or Winestix high quality oak products. Used in many of America's finest wineries, these oak barrel alternatives are crafted from tight-grain French, American and Hungarian oak staves. The staves are seasoned (air-dried) for at least 24 months, just as if they were destined for the highest quality barrels. Normally cubes are used with small batch sizes while segments and staves are used in batch sizes of 60 gallons and more. Fire Toasted or Convection Toasted? StaVin's oak cubes, segments and staves are toasted over an open fire resulting in a gradation of toasting that slowly contributes a multitude of positive flavor compounds over time. The complexity of compounds available from fire toasting most closely resembles barrel aging. Winestix’s are toasted in a convection oven resulting in a uniform toast level throughout the cube, segment or stave. Convection toasting can be really cool for isolating a more narrow band of flavors or mouthfeel that you want to consistently repeat. You can obtain further complexity with convection toasted oak by adding different toast levels to a single vessel. Either way you can’t go wrong, each brand and format will offer slightly different flavors as well as different extraction times. Experiment to find what you like best!
Using Oak in the Ferment of a Red Wine Using Toasted Oak During a Ferment: During a red wine fermentation, compounds derived from toasted oak are a highly effective and natural additive for initiating the stabilization of color and cross-linking grape tannins to help build mid-palate structure. These components can come from chips, cubes, segments or staves, and all are effective. However, each will differ in their rate of extraction based on surface area and exposure to end grain (the end grain extracts at a quicker rate than the rest of the wood surface). The extraction rates for the different oaks can be broken-down as follows (from quickest to slowest): Chips: around 7 days Cubes: 2 months minimum, useful life of 1 year Segments: 3 month minimum, useful life of 18 months Staves/Stix: 3 month minimum, useful life of 2 years So, with the exception of the chips, we can see that once the 2 to 4 weeks of a primary fermentation are over, each of the toasted oak products have a useful life far beyond this time period. Therefore, the winemaker can carry the oak through with the wine into the next tank post-press in order to continue the extraction during the structuring and maturation periods.

WineStix Segments are a new form of oak integration for wine, designed to give new barrel flavors with an extraction time similar to cubes. The combination of Short and Long grains result in amazing gradience of flavor similar to barrels, while extracting significantly quicker! These WineStix Segments feature a Toast Blend of 40% Medium, 40% Medium Plus and 20% Dark toasted stave. One 1 lb/490 grams treats approximately 100 gallons of wine.
American Blend OAK6001 pound
French Bordeaux Blend OAK6051 pound
The minimum amount of toasted oak needed to achieve cross-linking and structuring during a fermentation is 2–8 lbs of chips, cubes or segments per ton (1 ton gives around 160 gallons or 606 liters of must when crushed). Broken down even further, this works out to .2 to .8 ounces per gallon or .05 to .2 grams per liter. Use amounts on the lower side for chips and on the higher side for segments. Using Mesh Bags: When using toasted oak to structure a red wine fermentation the oak really needs to be in constant contact with the liquid portion of the wine throughout the entire fermentation. So, with this in mind, it is recommended to use a food-grade mesh bag (usually for the cubes and segments) and either weigh it down or tie it off in the fermenter so that the wood remains under the cap (the nylon bag also makes transferring the oak into the next vessel post-press all that much easier.)

StaVin™ Oak Segments If you are looking to replicate barrel flavors as closely as possible, then StaVin's™ Stave Segments are just right for you. Less end-grain than the cubes means a slower extraction over a longer contact time, which will lead to a softer and more rounded mouthfeel. The recommended ratio for 100% new barrel flavor is about .5 lb per 5 gallons of wine. Since the extraction is so slow, the minimum contact time is 16 weeks and they can be left on the wine for up to 18 months. Made from French Oak and feature a Medium Plus toast.

Clarifying Wine Lees stirrers Fining Agents (Clarifiers) are usually added to juice or wine to help clarify or to remove phenolic compounds associated with bitterness, astringency or browning, or proteins associated with haze. However, fining is non-selective. So at the same time you are removing the compounds you're after, you are also removing other desirable phenolic compounds that are contributing to flavor, mouthfeel, aroma and color. Thus the lowest level concentration that will do the job is always the most desired. The scientific approach to fining is to make a stock solution and then run bench trials to choose the lowest level fining that will perform your objective. Our packages are generally designed to treat either 6 or 60 gallons of wine at a mediumhigh dosage rate.
Gelatin Extra No.1 (Powdered) A heat soluble Gelatin available in powder form. Composed of high molecular weight proteins that carry a big positive charge. Gelatin will help to reduce cloudiness by removing colloidal substances. It has an overall tannin polishing effect, but still preserves the phenolic compounds responsible for structure (similar to fining with egg whites). Add at the rate of .2 to .35 grams per gallon. Prepare by mixing in warm water. Once dissolved completely, gradually incorporate into the wine during a transfer or pump-over. The solution must be maintained at 95–104°F (35–40°C) as it's added to the wine. FIN352 ounces

It works best when the wine is at a warmer temperature so we suggest clearing with bentonite in the late spring or early summer. Bentonite is also more effective at a lower pH because the positive charge on proteins is stronger at lower pH levels. Generic low level fining for five gallons: blend 1/2 tsp with 1/2 cup of hot water (140 to 200°F) in a blender for 1–2 minutes. Let stand for 60 minutes, mix, and stir into wine. Let stand for 10–14 days and then rack off. This is fining at .16 g/L FIN602 ounces FIN60LB1 pound
Polycacel Used both curatively and preventatively against browning and pinking in white juice or in wine under long term storage conditions. Polycacel helps improve wine color and overall organoleptic properties. Polycacel is a blend of polyvinylpolypyrolidone (PVPP), soluble potassium casein and micropulverized cellulose. This specific blend allows for more complete action on phenolic compounds while avoiding over-stripping the wine. FIN615.5 grams FIN61A55 grams
Cristalline Plus Recommended for whites, roses, fruit wines & ciders. Cristalline Plus is a blend of isinglass (fish-derived protein) and citric acid stabilized with SO2. Cristalline Plus has a strong positive charge which makes it very effective at improving the clarity of a wine (even those that are made from botrytised grapes). As an added benefit, Cristalline Plus can help improve the filterability of a wine. Cristalline Plus is not sensitive to cold temperatures and may be slow to finish settling. The use of Gelocolle (FIN64) an hour after the addition of Cristalline Plus will help speed the settling process and create more compact lees. FIN620.5 grams FIN62A5 grams FIN62B1 kilogram
Caseine Soluble Caseine Soluble is a concentrated, powdered form of Potassium Caseinate produced from milk. Helps eliminate oxidized phenolic (brown colored) and bitter compounds in white wines, rose wines, fruit wines, and meads. Can be used preemptively in the must or as a curative step on finished wine. See our website for more information on the dosage and use of Caseine Soluble. FIN631 ounce FIN63A10 ounce FIN63B1 kilogram
Gelocolle Often used with isinglass, bentonite, gelatins, and other organically derived fining agents to help compact the lees, Gelocolle is a liquid solution of suspended silica that is used during fining to help improve settling. Gelocolle also helps to limit the risk of over-fining when used in conjunction with other fining agents. Gelocolle can also be used to remove excess protein in both red and white wine, thereby improving their filterability. Gelocolle is completely inert and will not add any flavor or aroma to the wine. Once opened use immediately. Best stored at 50–68°F (10–20°C). Gelocolle solidifies irreversibly when frozen. SUGGESTED DOSAGE: In general, use Gelocolle at a rate of 1 mL Gelocolle per 1 g of the fining agent you are adding. For protein removal use 5 ml Gelocolle per gallon of wine. NOTE: When using Gelocolle with a gelatin fining, use 1.0 mL of Gelocolle to 1.0 mL of gelatin. FIN6430 ml FIN64A1 L
Used in the production of White, Rosé, Fruit Wines A proprietary IOC blend of soluble casein and bentonite. Bentolact S is most effective when used early (during cold settling). This fining agent is formulated for the preventative treatment of must prone to oxidation. It will help prevent the formation of undesirable off-characters. Using this with whites, roses, and light fruit wines will help prevent any negative characters from forming as a result of oxidation during processing. Depending upon the wine, a Bentolact S addition may take up to 7 days to settle. SUGGESTED DOSAGE: Juice: 2.25 grams per gallon Wine: Applied at a rate of 6 grams per gallon FIN6630 grams FIN66A300 grams
Inocolle Extra N1
For Gentle Fining Of Structured Red Wines Inocolle Extra N1 is a powdered proprietary formulation of high molecular weight gelatin protein. It can rapidly reduce turbidity, removing colloids which otherwise might precipitate later in the wine. Inocolle Extra N1 has an affinity for polyphenols and will enhance the aging potential of wine. Wines are polished, while mature phenolic compounds associated with balance and structure are preserved. A great choice for gentle fining of red wines. Store in a dry, odorfree environment below 77ºF. Applied at a rate of .3 grams per gallon FIN6730 grams FIN67A300 grams FIN67B1 kilogram
For treatment of astringent Red, White, & Fruit wines Colle Perle is a hydrolyzed gelatin solution. Primary uses are clarification and the removal of bitter tannins and phenolics. Colle Perle flocculates and settles well. Desirable aromas and flavors are retained while harsh characters are removed. It is particularly useful to optimize potential of hard pressed product. In white wines it can be used in conjunction with bentonite to compact lees. SUGGESTED DOSAGE: 4ml per gallon FIN681 ounce FIN68A8 ounces FIN68B1 liter
Removing Hydrogen Sulfide Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is a compound that smells like rotten eggs. It is always present in small amounts, below your flavor detection, as a natural by-product of yeast metabolism. Excessive levels (very stinky!) can be attributed to many factors including low FAN (Free Assimilable Nitrogen), the presence of sulfur left over from the vineyard, and high levels of suspended solids. If left unfixed the H2S can develop into Mono-mercaptans or Poly-mercaptans, which are more difficult to remove. If only H2S is present during the ferment it can normally be fixed with the addition of DAP. Our standard recommendation of Fermaid K, at 1/3 sugar depletion, contains DAP and will help eliminate potential H2S problems. After fermentation, H2S can be dealt with by the addition of Reduless or Copper Sulfate. Historically a common solution for H2S is to add 50 ppm of sulfite and perform an aerative racking. The tricky part is that you can't tell H2S and mono-mercaptans apart by smell or taste and aeration will convert mono-mercaptans into poly-mercaptans. Poly-mercaptans are very difficult to remove from the wine.
Kupzit® Kupzit® is an innovative copper citrate preparation developed to eliminate sulphide off-flavors, more specifically, hydrogen sulphide odors. Kupzit® contains 2 % copper citrate. For easy dosage and handling, it is coated onto a mineral carrier material – a particularly pure, high-quality bentonite – and then granulated. Kupzit® reacts quickly and specifically with sulphurous, disagreeably smelling compounds such as hydrogen sulphide and mercaptans. These compounds are fast acting and, when dosed accurately, show an insignificant increase in the copper content of your wine. DOSAGE & APPLICATION: For optimal treatment, pretests are absolutely recommended. Generally, the dosage amounts to 5–20 g/100 L. Prepare a slurry of Kupzit® and wine in a ratio of 1:10 then add and stir thoroughly for the best distribution into your wine. The reaction is completed within a few minutes after addition. Separation of the lees/ sediments is conducted by filtration within 1–2 days. When applied properly, the copper content is not, or only slightly increased, which means in most cases after the Kupzit® treatment blue fining is not required. Application can be conducted either separately or combined with clarification/ fining. In case of a combined fining Kupzit® is added as first component. FIN85A3 grams FIN85B30 grams
Reduless Reduless is designed to correct negative Voltatile Sulfur Compounds such as H2S (hydrogen sulfide, “rotten egg”) and DMS (dimethyl sulfide, “cooked corn”) defects in wine. Made from inactivated yeast that have been infused with copper using a proprietary process, Reduless is a much gentler H2S remedy on the wine than the traditional copper sulfate treatment alone. If you have an H2S problem, then we recommend treating it with Reduless first. However, if the sulfur problem still remains after the Reduless treatment, then a bench trial with copper sulfate (CuSO4) is recommended. FIN653 grams FIN65A30 grams FIN65B2.5 kilograms
Copper Sulfate 1% Some homewinemakers will treat wine affected with H2S by stirring with a copper rod or racking through a copper "scrubby". Copper converts the hydrogen sulfide into copper sulfide, which is not soluble in wine. However, putting wine in direct contact with a non-measured amount of copper can result in residual copper being left in your wine, especially in low pH environments. A more professional approach to the reduction of Hydrogen Sulfide is to use a measured amount of copper sulfate in a 1% solution. Normally a trial is set up to determine the smallest amount needed to eliminate the problem. Because the amounts used are very small, it will be necessary to use a pipette. Add copper sulfate in small 0.1 ppm doses. Wait several days for the copper sulfide to settle out and then rack off the lees. Do not add copper sulfate during an active fermentation as that may actually cause more hydrogen sulfide to form. For complete instructions refer to our MoreManual! “Copper Sulfate Trials” found on the document tab for FIN80 on our website. FIN801 oz or 30 mL FIN814 oz or 120 m
Resolving Issues Lees stirrers Yeast Hulls Yeast hulls are usually the first action when you have a stuck or sluggish alcoholic or malolactic ferment. Yeast Hulls are essentially dead cell walls that absorb toxic yeast by-products that could be inhibiting fermentation. Yeast Hulls are then typically followed by ProRestart in the case of a stuck alcoholic fermentation or Acti ML in the case of a stuck ML ferment. As a side note, Yeast Hulls are included in the Fermaid K mix of nutrients to help prevent problem ferments from the onset. The reason you would not use Fermaid K for a stuck ferment is that Fermaid K contains DAP. If DAP is added to the ferment past the point of metabolization by the yeast, it could potentially leave an unwanted, residual flavor. Use at the rate of .5 – .9 grams per gallon.

Stuck or Sluggish Fermentation ProRestart Uvaferm 43 Works quickly due to preconditioning and direct addition into a stuck or sluggish fermentation. This is a great deal easier than traditional restart methods. Decreases spoilage risks due to its rapid fermentative activity and helps avoid excessive SO2 additions. Decreases risks related to color loss and oxidation. Preserves the flavor of the wine due to rapid sugar consumption without volatile acidity increase or other spoilage problems. Use 83 g per 30 gallons. Can be transferred to next barrel after first barrel is finished. Comes with nylon mesh bag and full set of instructions. DYW9883 g & 1 mesh bag
The best yeast to use on stuck fermentations. It has a high alcohol tolerance, short lag time, and ability to ferment over a broad temperature range. Great for a variety of styles of wine, this yeast demonstrates a relatively neutral sensory effect on the finished wine, but has been known to impart some berry and cherry aromatics. See page 24. DYW768 grams DYW76A80 grams
Lowering Acidity Potassium Carbonate Used to lower acidity levels. 3.8 grams per gallon will reduce acidity by about .1%. Requires that the fermenter be stored cold for several weeks, during which the tartaric acid drops out as Potassium Bitartrate. The preferred method of reducing acid and raising pH. Doing a trial run with a small amount is strongly suggested to determine exactly what the drop in acidity will be. AD6402 ounce AD640LB 1pound AD640S55 pound sack
Calcium Carbonate Calcium Carbonate will lower acidity and does not require cold stabilization to precipitate-out acid like Potassium Carbonate does, but it takes longer, affects flavor, and it reduces tartaric before dropping out malic or citric acids. 2.5 grams per gallon will roughly lower acidity by .1%.

Filtering Sizing a wine filter for your winery is the first step on the road to enhanced stability and clarity in the wines you produce. The basic idea behind sizing a wine filter is to be able to filter the largest single lot of wine that you are likely to produce without clogging the filter media and having to stop the filtration process – this will always lead to the loss of whatever wine you have in the filter body and the hoses leading to and from the filter. A good rule of thumb for 20 x 20 cm filters is that you will be able to run between 10 and 15 gallons of wine per pad in the filter. So, a 10 plate wine filter will run between 100 and 150 gallons before clogging, provided that the wine is well settled and/or has been filtered already through a rougher pad. Again, this is a general rule and it is very important to understand that a wide range of factors can influence this. That said, this general rule of thumb tends to hold pretty true. * Filters do not qualify for our free shipping policy, and are only imported once per year.

Plate and Frame Filtration (also called Pad or Depth Filtration) is in most cases the best and most economical option for small scale wine producers. Plate and Frame filters work by placing disposable cellulose filtration pads in the filter body and then passing the wine through these pads. The pads are available in a variety of grades, each successive grade providing a tighter, more thorough filtration. Because the wine does not pass through the pads successively, which is to say that a given unit of wine will only pass through one pad, all the pads in the filter need to be the same grade unless you are using a Double Filtration Kit which splits your filter body into two distinct “chambers.” Filters are sized based on the amount of wine that you will need to be able to filter in a given run. On average you can pass 10–15 gal through a 20 x 20 cm pad and 40–60 gal through a 40 x 40 cm pad before they will clog and no longer provide an effective filtration. The filters can be sterilized by in-line steam, auto-claving, dry heat, or chemical sanitizer. These types of filter pads carry a nominal rating, which means that the micron rating is just an average. Some particulate below the micron rating will be filtered out and some particulate above the rating will get through. Each pad has a rough side and a smooth side. Pads should be placed in the filter in a rough-smooth-smooth-rough configuration with wine entering the rough side.

BevBright's™ filters are disposable, multi-zoned, cartridge style filters perfect for filtering wine with any standard 10" filter cartridge housing. Historically as home winemakers the only spun poly, cartridge style filters available have been standard water filters. These cheap filters remove only 60-80% of the material in a single pass. That leaves us wondering why sometimes there is still sediment in the finished product. Even though cartridge filtering is easier, without drips, and the equipment is cheaper many turned to plate & pad filtration. BevBright™ filters have definitely reverse that trend! BevBright™ achieves superior efficiency by being the first to spin different diameters of poly strands on the same core to create zones. The zone closest to the core contains really tight fibers for final filtration while the final outer layer zone is spun with larger fibers for increased dirt holding capacity and increased flow capacity. The best of both worlds. By comparison typical water filters are spun with only one size of fiber. Choose the efficiency you want from 90, 98 or 99.8% of material removed in single pass at the micron rating and price point that makes the most sense for you. We do not recommend storing cartridges between use.

Professional Spout Gravity Fillers Gravity fillers are a great choice for achieving exactly the same fill height in every bottle. They fill to a height you determine and then shut off automatically. Gravity fillers are dependable, simple to operate, have no electrical parts, and few moving parts. The negative aspect of using a gravity filler is there can be a higher degree of oxidation that can occur during bottling. A gravity filler picks up oxygen in the holding reservoir and then again as it enters the bottle. Some winemakers feel a little oxygen during this process is ok, others think it can mute the delicate flavors you worked so hard to achieve. It really depends on your wine and your winemaking style.
Reduce oxidation in a gravity filler by pre-flushing your bottles with inert gas. Online descriptions contain more information on using these products to flush bottles.

Corks & Corkers Choosing The Correct Cork When browsing MoreWine!'s selection of wine corks, it may be difficult to know which one is best for your particular wine. Choosing the correct cork comes down to two factors: how long the wine will be in the bottle before it gets consumed and economics. If you will be bottling a simple, fruity wine that will be consumed within a year, then you probably don't need a wine cork that is rated for 15–20 years. On the other hand, if you have made a wine that you will be appreciating for the next 5–10 years then it doesn't make sense to close that bottle with a wine cork that is only rated for 1 year either! Therefore, when choosing your cork, the goal is to strike a balance between the projected lifespan of the wine and how much you need to spend to ensure the wine is protected for this duration.
Years Corks Are Rated For: • AGLICArated for 1 year • AGGLOMERATEDrated 2 years • GRADE 3rated for 5–10 years • GRADE 2rated for 5–15 years • GRADE 1is rated for 5–20 years Corks are normally sold by bags of 1000. These bags come sealed directly from the cork manufacturer. When we do repackaging into smaller bags we do all of our work under a HEPA filtered, sanitary, laminar flow work space to help ensure you receive the cleanest corks possible.
A. Natural Corks
Natural corks are made from a single, punched piece of cork. Corks are graded on their degree of porosity. The better grades (1, 2 or 3) represent a very high quality cork that will last for years and are easily inserted and removed . Cheaper grades (above 3) are punched from lesser quality sections of Cork Tree bark and can be too porous. The corks we sell are grade 3 or better. We have traveled to the factory in Portugal where these corks originate and have walked the path a cork takes from the grading of bark all the way to the final quality control inspection. The entire process is designed to reduce the possibility of TCA from the original harvesting, to storing on concrete instead of dirt, to the unique steaming chambers, to the final quality control checkpoints. We are very confident in the quality and received great customer feedback over the years.
13/4" Natural Corks
This is a high quality agglomerated cork with solid end caps. An agglomerated cork is a cork that is composed of many small pieces that are pressed and adhered together. As the quality of cork has declined many wineries have begun to use alternative corks, such as synthetics or these agglomerated corks to insure a good seal in their wine. These corks offer the assurance of a good seal while at the same time allowing the breathing properties that solid corks offer. Agglomerated corks work best with floor corkers as they are hard to put in with hand corkers (they do not compress as easily.) W418CBag of 25 W418BBag of 100 W418Bag of 1000
D. Aglica Corks

Measuring & Testing Why use a Refractometer? If you are grape grower, a refractometer is an invaluable tool for measuring the rising sugar levels (on the brix scale) of your grapes as you approach harvest. If you are a winemaker you use a refractometer to take quick, easy sugar reading at the Crush. And with MoreWine!’s free online Refractometer Calculator, they can also be used to monitor the progress of fermentation (see the Documents tab in our on-line descriptions).
Take Readings During or After Fermentation In the past you could only use a refractometer before the presence of alcohol. Once alcohol was present the reading was distorted and inaccurate. Our free downloadable excel spreadsheet now compensates for the presence of alcohol allowing you to use a refractometer from the Crush all the way through to the finish of fermentation. This eliminates the need for a hydrometer and allows you to easily take sugar readings at any time. All of our models features ATC (Automatic Temperature Compensation). Traditional refractometers without ATC are calibrated to work at 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The ATC function allows you to use the refractometer in an ambient temperature range of 50–86 degrees Fahrenheit (10–30 Celsius.) Because your sample is just one drop, and will quickly adjust to the temperature of the refractometer, the temperature of the sample is irrelevant. All models can be calibrated using distilled water.
Refractometers A. Dual Scale Refractometer ATC & Light
This unique model was designed for winemakers and brewers alike. Features both a Brix Scale and a Specific Gravity Scale. The LED light is a handy feature that helps illuminate the sample and make the scale easier to read. • Brix Range: 0 to 30% • Specific Gravity: 0 to 1.120 MT708
B. Deluxe Brix Refractometer ATC
Why do we sell a model that is twice the price of most imported refractometers? Well, if you are like us and enjoy quality and good craftsmanship then this is well worth the money. Features the clearest and easiest to read brix scale that we have found. • Brix Range: 0 to 30% MT706
C. Hanna Digital Refractometer ATC
The HI 96811 Digital Wine Refractometer is a rugged portable, water resistant device that benefits from HANNA’s years of experience as a manufacturer of analytical instruments. Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water. Within seconds the instrument measures the refractive index of the grape sample and converts it to % Brix concentration units. The HI 96811 digital refractometer eliminates the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and is portable for measurements in the field. For additional information on the HANNAHI 96811 visit www.MoreWine.com. Specifications • Range: 0 – 50% Brix / 0 to 80˚C (32 to 176°F) • Resolution: 0.1% Brix / 0.1˚C (0.1°F) • Accuracy: 0.2 % Brix / 0.3˚C (0.5°F) • Minimum Sample Volume: 2 metric drops • Battery Type / Life: (1) 9V / 5000 readings MT712

Ph Meters Preparing Your pH Meter For Use When you first receive your pH meter, the probe will most likely be dry and it will need to be conditioned before it can be used reliably. This is done by removing the protective cap that covers the probe, rinsing the probe under running water, and soaking in distilled or tap water for about 30 min. Once the probe has been conditioned, you should keep the cap filled with the storage solution for the rest of your probe’s life.
Getting The Most Form Your pH Meter The electrode probe, the highly sensitive part of the pH meter that measures pH values, is guaranteed for 6 months. However, if you take care of your meter, i.e., keep it always topped-up with storage solution you should reasonably expect to get a year or two out of it. Some meters featured here come with replaceable electrodes.
Use Your pH Meter To Test Acidity For the home winemaker, using an acid test kit (W501CS) can often be a frustrating (and inaccurate!) experience. At first glance, the test itself is a fairly straight forward procedure — you take a specified amount of sample, add a few drops of a color indicator to it (phenolphthalein), and slowly add sodium hydroxide (NaOH) until the sample changes color, thus indicating the endpoint of the test and your wines acidity. The difficult aspect is determining exactly when the color changed. However, this color change happens at exactly a pH of 8.2. By using a pH meter in conjunction with an Acid Test Kit you can tell exactly when the end point occurs, resulting in far more accurate results.

so2 Testing If you've been making wine for a while, or even just looking in to making wine, you've probably heard of the importance of regular SO2 testing. SO2 management is an essential part of winemaking, and poor SO2 management is the #1 cause of winemaking issues and failed wines that we see with home winemakers. Many of the popular texts on winemaking underplay the importance of SO 2 testing. As a result many winemakers don't test it (or have it tested) nearly frequently enough, and often even when they do they do not add sufficient sulfite to bring the SO2 to an appropriate place for their wine. SO2 is used in winemaking both at the crush phase, and then again during aging. At crush it is used to kill off any native yeast, bacteria or mold that might be on the grapes when they come in from the vineyard. During aging the main role is to interact with oxygen and prevent the oxygen from having a negative effect on the wine. Unfortunately once some SO2 is added to the wine it does not just stick around waiting for oxygen to come along. Over time the SO2 will find color molecules, bacteria cell walls, residual yeast and other suspended solids and it will bind with them, making it unavailable to protect the wine. Because of this, the SO2 levels should be tested not only whenever the container of wine is opened (allowing oxygen in) but also simply at regular intervals to monitor the amount that is being bound up. Typically a wine will bind SO2 more quickly in the first month or two after fermentation, when it has the most oxygen and suspended solids in it. After the first few months you can switch to testing less frequently without ill effects. As a general rule wines in carboys or stainless tanks can be tested every 8–10 weeks. Wines in barrels should be tested more frequently because they are actually interacting with the environment and a small amount of oxygen is always entering the wine. Barrel aged wines should be tested every 6–8 weeks.

J. Total Acidity Test Kit
A Must Have For Any Beginning Winemaker Used to tell the acidity of your must or wine. Take a specified amount of sample, add a few drops of a color indicator to it (phenolphthalein), and slowly add sodium hydroxide (NaOH) until the sample changes color, thus indicating the endpoint of the test. Once it is known how many mL of sodium hydroxide is needed to reach a color change, an easy calculation is performed to determine acidity. A very simple test to perform. Much more precise results can be obtained using this test in conjunction with a pH meter, stir plate and beaker. See Stir Plate on page 59 for more information. W501CS
K. Advanced Kit for Total Acidity Proper acid adjustments rely on accurate measurements. This advanced set-up for total acidity testing will have you running acid tests fast and accurately.
